Do I need a construction permit to replace my sidewalk or service walk?

The Building Department does not issue permits for sidewalks. Public sidewalks (usually adjacent to a road) require approvals and permits from Engineering. Service walks (the walkway usually from the road or public sidewalk to the front door) only needs to be compliant with coverage requirements in the Zoning Ordinance.
