The city’s public stair network is comprised of 700 staircases which vary in size, age, construction material and current condition.

The city is currently engaged in an effort to assess City Steps in order to develop a way to more systematically repair and maintain these treasured assets. Using mapping analysis, public input and field work, the city will create a prioritized repair and rebuilding schedule. In addition to creating a priority list, this project will consider the material, aesthetic and public amenity aspects of the staircases through the creation of new design guidelines and life cycle cost estimates.
