Charlottesville City Code requires that property owners remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of snowfall
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Charlottesville City Code requires that property owners remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of snowfall. Per City Code Section 28-25, it is the responsibility of owners/occupants of properties in the City which abut or front paved sidewalks to clear the sidewalk of snow, sleet and ice.
As the snow ended overnight, the City Manager has declared 12 p.m. Friday, February 19th to be the official end of snowfall. Snow must be removed from sidewalks by 12 p.m. Saturday, February 20th.
Cleared sidewalks help ensure the safety of both pedestrians and motorists by giving those on foot a safe route to walk. Walking in the roadway is extremely dangerous. Please clear the entire width of the sidewalk rather than a shovel width to allow strollers and wheelchairs a clear pathway.
The City of Charlottesville reminds the community to be safe and healthy when shoveling snow and to assist neighbors who may have difficulty removing snow from their property. If you would like to report an unshoveled sidewalk, please call 970-3182, or use the MyCville app and include the property address.
