Beard Avenue Sidewalk Snow Removal
Property owners are responsible for snow removal on the sidewalks adjoining their property.
To keep pedestrians safe, sidewalks must be cleared of all ice and snow during the winter. According to Edina City Code 1200.03, "All snow and ice shall be removed from a sidewalk by the owner of the property adjoining the sidewalk within 48 hours of the cessation of the precipitation." This means property owners must clear sidewalks of all snow or ice within two days of the end of a snowfall. Any snow removed from walkways, driveways or sidewalks must remain on the property. Snow cannot be plowed into City streets or onto a neighboring property.
If snow and ice are not removed within seven days after receiving a written notice from the City, residents may be charged for the cost of removal by the City, which could exceed $300.
