Transportation Services plows commuter trails in the City by priority. Sidewalks adjacent to City owned property,Dog in Snow such as public utility lots, easements and parks will be cleared of snow during the Residential Snow Plowing operation.

Pathways within public utility lots and parks will not be plowed unless these pathways are links between sidewalks and pathways under City responsibility.

The Parks Department looks after recreational trails in subdivisions and Muskoseepi Park maintains the trails within the Bear Creek Park and Crystal Lake Pond areas

Residents are responsible for clearing sidewalks adjacent to their own property.

Will snow get pushed onto sidewalks on residential snow plow days?

The normal procedure is not to cover sidewalks. Certain conditions may result in snow from the road covering or partially covering the sidewalks.  Certain conditions may be one or all of the below:

  • When snow pushed to the sides of the road gets too high, or during residential snow plowing, some snow may spill over;
  • If roadways get too narrow and  there is an assessed safety issue, at the discretion of a Supervisor, snow may get pushed and stored onto the sidewalk.
