Snow Removal Pilot Project – UPDATE

After much consideration, and hearing concerns from residents, we will no longer blow snow onto residential lawns.

Our biggest hindrance is having vehicles parked on both sides of the road which severely impedes our efficiency.

Therefore, while we are expecting a significant snowfall over the next 30 hours, we are asking residents to PLEASE park on the odd numbered side of the streets. This will allow is to move our equipment around efficiently, while covering a large section of the community.

The priority routes and maps are determined by the snow removal policy.

Updated January 9, 2018 to clarify Priority C designations.

    Hi Diane, the town puts up signs warning people about snow removal, if they can’t move their vehicles maybe someone should tow them or give them a warning for next time, being fair also helps! Yes very frustrating posing around vehicles and takes e tea time. Thanks for update.

    Nice to see that our street or any of the cul de sac’s are highlighted at all!!! I live at 707-3rd ave, what’s the plan for these areas?

      Hi Sheldon, The streets that are not coloured will be taken care of along with or after Priority C. We have updated the map for clarity.

    What is the difference…… blowing snow on to the lawns or piling snow on corners of everyones lawn???
    Lovely mess of sand and gravel to clean off lawn in the spring? Very hard on mower blades if we dont, vacuum the lawn in the spring.

    I thought Fox Creek was supposed to be a progressive community. Why then are we going back to snow removal methods that the town used 30 years ago? Wonderfully stupid idea having all that sand and crap piled on our front lawns. Are the town going to remove it in the spring? Any bets?
