The City does not maintain pavers in perpetuity. Unfortunately, due to year year-round foot traffic and weather, the pavers will wear out and become unreadable over time. Pavers in certain areas wear out faster than others. Residents are welcome to buy replacement pavers, and staff will try to place the replacements in the same location.
