Please remember that seasonal decorative lighting installed over the winter holidays may be installed on or after November 1, however, that lighting may not be lit until the November 15 - January 15 period. Please plan ahead to have your lights up and down as noted in the community guidelines.
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 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 385-5977 to provide the address of an unshoveled sidewalk.
