When are sidewalks required?

Douglas County Unified Development Code requires sidewalks on both sides of all internal streets on any development that has 25 lots or more. Also, sidewalks are required along the existing County roads when the development is within a one-mile radius of a school. Sidewalks should be a minimum of four feet wide, four feet from the back of curb and four inches thick. Sidewalks are not required when lot size is 3 acres or more.
