Who clears sidewalks and driveways?
Both are the responsibility of residents and property owners. The City appeals to citizens to keep this critical part of Aurora's transportation system moving by clearing sidewalks, especially for children walking to and from school. State law protects property owners from any added liability if they shovel their sidewalks. Residents should shovel snow into the yard, not into the street. Shoveling snow onto the street is against City ordinance because it causes dangerously slippery conditions for both motorists and pedestrians. City crews try to avoid putting large piles of snow in front of driveways, however, this is not always possible. To avoid having to double shovel, you may want to wait until after your street has been plowed to the curb before you clear your driveway.
