Residential streets will only be plowed when snow accumulations are 4” or more to allow access for emergency vehicles. Plowing from curb to curb is not practical because it would require more time and moving of many parked vehicles.
When plowing the street, piles of snow called “windrows” are often created that can block driveways. When you consider the large number of driveways in the city, it’s just too costly and time consuming to use additional people and equipment to perform this service. Our primary goal is to keep open more than 187 lane miles of designated snow routes.
Snowplow drivers will make every effort to avoid plowing snow onto sidewalks; however, there may be times that this cannot be avoided and sidewalks may become blocked. The Streets Department will make every effort to clear sidewalks that have been covered by City plows at no cost to the property owner.
Sidewalks that are owned by the City will be cleared by the Recreations Services, Park Maintenance. They can be reached at 303-460-6960 or email@example.com.
Residents are required to clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after the storm subsides per BMC 12-04-030. If you are concerned about sidewalks that have not been cleared, you can submit a concern by using the Broomfield Code Compliance online form or call the Police Department non-emergency line at 303-438-6400.
