Find answers to the most common questions about Residential Snow Clearing.
There is no set footage outlining what is City-owned as this is determined by where property/front lawn sits on the right of way. Some City-owned boulevards can be up to 4 meters of a resident's lawn.
Recommendations to change the snow clearing program can be brought to Infrastructure and Protective Services Committee/City Council for review.
Current snow clearing practices are defined in Policy 606: Snow and Ice Control.
Depending on your location, the City owned boulevard could be as much as 4 metres beyond the curb. It is important to keep lawn ornaments and shrubs outside of this area as it could be damaged by the snow clearing operations.
Residential snow clearing service will start within 24 hours after a major snow event or when 10 cm of snow has accumulated on roadways.
Residential snow clearing is a scheduled program, occurring the day before garbage collection day, only when initiated
Plowing will not normally take place on the weekends; therefore, if Monday is garbage collection day, Friday is snow plowing day.
The days and areas for residential snow removal can be found below:
Residents can assist the City in completing efficient and scheduled snow plowing by ensuring vehicles are removed from the street prior to a designated snow removal day.
Paved alleyways will be cleared during residential snow plowing. Gravel lanes will be plowed under a separate program.
Transportation Services makes every effort to complete residential clearing as quickly as possible. In order to continue to provide this level of service, vehicles and other obstacles must be removed from the road and from paved lanes. Too many vehicles on the road may require City Crews to skip your street.
Notice of service start-up will be provided to local media and announced on City social media pages and the City’s website. The most up-to-date information can be found under latest news on cityofgp.com.
There is no application process for driveway windrow clearing. All driveway windrows will be cleared in the 2018/2019 winter season.
Residential snow clearing takes place in a two week rotation with each day assigned to specific neighbourhoods.
Contracted crews make their best effort to clear all of a residential area in the first week. If this does not happen, the crews will return during the second week to complete the remainder of plowing.
Streets that are still in need of plowing can be reported online at cityofgp.com/report-issues
