I might use attribution (even features) from existing streets as starting point. This will standardize naming, save time. Also, put some accounting fields in such as surveyor name, qa/qc'd, GPS time date stamp to mention some. I recommend an initial data collection to take copious notes, think of additional data to get while there, refine workflow, then come back and refine your data model & process before continuing with full effort.

Subject: shrug-l: Sidewalk Survey

Hi all,
I am getting ready to conduct a sidewalk inventory for our
city.  We want to identify and map out the entire city showing where
sidewalks are and are not, the condition of existing sidewalks and length. 
I plan to have the following fields in my table:
Street, Block, Condition (not present, needs improving, or
good), and Length.  I might also document width, but since for the most
part we have constructed sidewalks at a standard width that may not be as
So my question to those of you who have conducted sidewalk
mapping before can you suggest any other fields I must have?
