Snow Clearing Information for Residents

February 23, 2011

In the event of snowfall, property owners and residents are advised that the Township of Esquimalt’s Streets and Traffic Bylaw No. 2607 requires you to clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your premises. Please remember your elderly or disabled neighbours who would appreciate your assistance with snow removal.


The Municipality requests that when you clean your driveway and sidewalks please place the snow on the right side of your driveway as you face the road. This will keep snow plows from filling in your driveway as they clear the roads.


The Municipality will make every effort to keep major arterial collector streets and bus routes open and to clear snow from as many residential streets as possible.


The co-operation of all property owners and residents in this matter is greatly appreciated.
