Residents are reminded to keep sidewalks adjacent to their property free of obstacles when placing garbage and recycling bins out for collection to assist those with mobility issues, including the elderly and individuals with disabilities. Property owners are required to clear sidewalks adjacent to their property by 10:00 a.m. the day following the end of a snow storm. Clearing your sidewalk will keep our community accessible for residents of all ages & abilities and assist first responders during medical emergencies in your neighborhood.
