A sidewalk outside a South Los Angeles home underwent repairs Tuesday as part of a collaboration between City Councilman Bernard Parks and the nonprofit Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI).

The privately funded sidewalk repair project at 1762 W. 48th St. is the 100th in Parks’ district as a result of the partnership. It is being done in front of the home of an elderly woman who complained she could not easily leave the residence due to the buckled sidewalk.

The 100 projects completed with the help of LANI cost $748,120 and were performed more quickly and cheaply than ones done by city crews, the councilman said.

Last year, the city budgeted $10 million for sidewalk repairs, but ultimately just $3.7 million was allocated for 21 repair projects. Parks noted that the city this year budgeted $27 million for sidewalk repairs but has yet to allocate money toward any projects.

Parks said he hopes to get a total of 400 repair projects completed before he leaves office in June 2015.

The city is engaged in a number of legal disputes over disability access on public rights-of-way. Officials said those disputes will affect how the city approaches sidewalk repairs in front of privately owned homes and buildings.

The $27 million budgeted for sidewalk repairs this year had been recommended for projects next to city-owned-and-controlled properties, which are not affected by the litigation.

Officials identified at least 235 possible locations that need repairs, but city leaders this month held off on green-lighting the $27 million repair plan for these sites in favor of waiting for the outcome of the litigation.
