Getting Ready for Snow: Tips for Residents and Snow Operations Info
With snow potentially on the way, our Public Works crews are preparing to clear Mission streets around the clock if needed.
Here’s how you can help:
- Move cars before expected overnight snow so plow drivers have room to fully clear streets.
- Carefully shovel/blow snow onto lawns, not streets where it can become hazardous ice.
- Check on elderly or disabled neighbors and lend a hand clearing their sidewalks.
- Stay updated on conditions – slow down, leave distance between cars, avoid unneeded travel.
When snow is coming, we operate 24/7 across 4 priority routes covering main roads and neighborhoods, focusing first on hills, high-traffic, and tricky terrain.
Residents can assist by moving parked cars ahead of time per city codes requiring clearing sidewalk snow within 48 hours after 2+ inch snowfalls. No dumping snow into streets. Sign up to volunteer for neighbor shoveling here.
With residents and crews working together, we’ll keep Mission streets as safe as possible! See more snow removal information here.
