Los Angeles city leaders have spent months discussing the best strategy for assessing the condition of thousands of miles of broken and buckled sidewalks. With the total cost of repairs expected to reach $1.5 billion, officials warn an exhaustive survey of the damage could take three years to complete and cost more than $10 million.

Readers can submit reports to the Times' own database of damaged sidewalks by snapping a picture and uploading it to our online form, sending an email to latimessidewalks@gmail.com with the photo as an attachment, or tweeting a photo with the address using the hashtag #lasidewalks.

If you send an email, please let us know the approximate address of the damage in the subject line, and describe the problem in the body of the message.


No sidewalk

All of the houses on my street have sidewalks, but ours does not. We live on a hillside in Eagle Rock. We have sought advice and were informed that in order to place a sidewalk we would be required to put in a seven foot retaining wall and pour more concrete than is in the Hoover Dam (the length of the front of the property is 105 feet). I am sure the neighbors are distressed at the way the front of the property looks. Is there any way to get any assistance to put the sidewalk in?
