Concrete Jack to Remediate Trip Hazards

Concrete Jack will be performing repair work on HOA owned sidewalks to raise and support or grind down concrete as appropriate, to reduce trip hazards.  They are scheduled to be on site from Monday, February 20th-Thursday, February 23rd. We do not anticipate any significant interruptions in sidewalk access.  Detailed information on the process can be found on their website at http://concretejack.com/sidewalk-repair/.  These repairs are both environmentally friendly (uses existing concrete rather than removing, discarding of, and repouring old concrete) and cost efficient.
