When will the town plow my street?

The town’s Snow & Ice Control Plan has three priorities, explaining where the town starts snow plowing first. The plan is to return road surfaces to safe winter driving conditions as soon as possible within the limitations of this plan, our limited resources, and weather conditions. Staff will evaluate the weather conditions during each snowstorm and will dispatch snow removal crews to impacted areas as need. Priorities include arterial and collector streets, critical facilities — such as medical offices and the fire department — and our schools. Designated problem areas, such as hills, roundabouts and intersections, are also made a priority. It must be recognized that, although this plan sets general guidelines to be followed, each snowstorm has its own characteristics with variable conditions, such as air and pavement temperatures, wind speed and direction, precipitation rates and types, extreme temperatures, timing, duration, and traffic activity. This plan must remain flexible and take into consideration these variables.
