To ensure safe travels throughout the city, Denver property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks after a snowfall. Once snow has stopped falling, walks adjacent to homes must be cleared within 24 hours, and walks adjacent to commercial properties (including multi-family buildings), must be cleared within four hours.
A reminder from Denver’s Community Planning & Development Office:
From mail carriers to neighbors walking their dogs, many use public sidewalks every day, and timely shoveling ensures we can all do so safely. When snow isn’t shoveled, it gets packed down and becomes ice, making sidewalks hazardous for pedestrians and wheelchair users.
We encourage you to shovel early and often, use de-icing product to keep snow from building up, and lend a hand to neighbors in need.
