Snow Removal

Certain routes in the City have been marked as emergency snow routes. You are asked to avoid parking on these routes during snowfall events.

During snowfall events, City Crews focus first on main traffic corridors, then clear snow from local access streets. Unfortunately, it is not possible to avoid plowing  windrows of snow across the ends of driveways. We know that's frustrating, but we hope you understand.
