Are all sidewalks public property or can I replace mine with a permeable surface?

    It depends on the city, but usually sidewalks are public space but maintenance is the responisibility of the property owner.  For example, in Seattle, property owners must make sure to clear hazardous ice and snow and they must repair cracks and other hazardous damage.  Also, if the owner wants to replace the existing sidewalk, they must obtain a permit from the city to make sure it falls in line with existing regulations. I would check with your local ordinances before taking any actions.
