Sidewalks (New & Repairs)

Request a Repair

Sidewalk damage can be reported online through YourGOV, via phone (770) 528-3666, or by emailing [email protected].

Request Sidewalk Installation

Currently, Cobb County requires all developers to install sidewalks in new-build developments. Typically, the cost of new sidewalks is absorbed, by the homeowner, in the cost of the new home. But not every neighborhood in Cobb County, due to location or age, have sidewalks or sidewalk access. In these cases, a property owner can request that a Sidewalk District be created (see Article III. Sidewalks to view applicable sections of the Official Code of Cobb County).

To begin this process, submit a request to the Cobb County DOT at [email protected]

Streetlight (New & Repairs)

Requests for New Streetlights

The process for requesting the installation of a new streetlight is included on the Bicycle and Pedestrian page.
