If an existing sidewalk slab is cracked, and the crack is more than one inch in width or results in a difference in elevation of one inch or more on each side of the crack, the slab must be replaced. Existing sidewalk slabs that slope more than one inch per foot toward the street or toward the abutting property must be repaired.
