Sidewalk Snow Removal

  • Colorado Springs requires property owners to clear their walkways so that EVERYONE has safe access throughout the City!  Senior citizens, people with disabilities, parents with strollers, and mail carriers -just to name a few- struggle to negotiate hazardous walkways.  We need to do our part to make our community safe and accessible for all.
  • Timing: Once snow has stopped falling, residents have twenty-four (24) hours and businesses have until 5 p.m. the following day, to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks adjacent to their property.
  • Report A Problem: We encourage residents to work together to keep sidewalks clear for safe passage and kindly remind neighbors with unshoveled sidewalks of the City's requirement.  To report a problem, please contact neighborhood services at 444-7891 to provide the address of an unshoveled sidewalk.
  • Education: Colorado Springs relies on citizen reports to help us identify property owners who need to be informed of sidewalk safety requirements.
  • Learn about the "Snow Angel" program to help those in need and be a good neighbor.
  • City code that refers to snow removal on private sidewalks.
