[ARCHIVED] *UPDATE* - Charlottesville Snow Removal Reminder

Shoveling Snow

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 7, 2022


*UPDATE* - City of Charlottesville Snow Removal Reminder


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Charlottesville City Code requires that property owners remove snow from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of snowfall. 

With the additional snowfall early Friday morning, the existing 24 hour removal period was reset. As a result, the Deputy City Managers have declared 8:00 am on Friday, January 7, 2022 to be the official end of snowfall.  Snow must be removed from sidewalks by 8:00 am on Saturday, January 8, 2022.  Should another snow event occur within this 24 hour window, the time frame for removal will reset once again.

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.  In cases of ice cover, please put down salt or sand to minimize slipping.

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.
