How Much Time You Have to Clear Sidewalks
Today's snow forecast estimates the Loveland-Ft. Collins areas will receive 6 to 12 inches and Greeley to Fort Morgan will get 3 to 6 inches. Snow depths may vary here in northern Colorado with this latest storm system but one thing is for sure. We must clear our sidewalks. Here are some of the city's rules.
Sidewalk Snow Removal in Fort Collins
Residents are required to remove snow and ice from the public sidewalk adjacent to their property within 24 hours of accumulation. This includes the sidewalk across the driveway. Code Compliance Inspectors enforce the sidewalk snow removal ordinance, and hire snow removal contractors to correct sidewalk hazards at the property owner's cost. Unshoveled sidewalks may be reported online using Access Fort Collins or by calling the Nuisance Hotline at 416-2200.
Snow Removal from Sidewalks in Greeley
Greeley residents, property managers and businesses are reminded that city codes require that snow and ice be removed from all public sidewalks within 24 hours after the end of a winter storm. Failure to clear public walkways is considered to be a code infraction. To report a property where the sidewalk has not been cleared, please call the City of Greeley Code Compliance office with the address of the property. If you leave a message after hours, please leave your name and call back number so that staff may contact you for more information if needed. Reporting party information is kept confidential.

Sidewalk Snow Removal in Loveland
City residents are required by ordinance to clear snow from their sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall's end. When residents fail to do this, school children and other pedestrians are forced to walk on either snow-packed, icy sidewalks, or out in the street itself. Either scenario can lead to serious injury.To report an unshoveled sidewalk, please call the Police Department. After providing ample notice to the offending residence, the City will levy both a removal fee and a fine if it must clear such a walk. City of Loveland Snow Removal FAQ
