What can I do to help keep my driveway clear of snow?

Although we do our best to be attentive to individual driveways and minimize inconveniences to residents, the plows sometimes fill in areas on previously cleaned driveways and sidewalks. Property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from their property including or where snow and ice has been placed upon such areas as a result of snow or ice clearing operations.

You can prevent snow plows blocking your driveway by clearing a portion of the road immediately adjacent to your driveway (to the right of your driveway when facing your house). Doing so provides an area where snow from the plow truck can be deposited before reaching your driveway
