Concerns - Roads

Snow Removal:

Because of our location, salt trucks are not able to get to us until some of the more crucial areas are covered.  The idea was brought up by a resident that if there are any members who have a plow truck that they would be willing to run through the subdivision, let us know.  In addition to salt, if anyone has any other ideas as to snow removal let us know and we can look into it.

Volunteers are needed to help clear any storm drains that may become blocked.  Residents also need to check and make sure that their sump pump drains are not blocked, to prevent a back up. 

Residents are also encouraged to make sure fire hydrants are cleared of snow.  If you have a fire hydrant in your yard and are unable to get to it or clear around it, please contact the city's 311 service and let them know.  In a fire every second counts so we want to make sure we stay ahead of this!

We also ask that residents make an effort to clear their sidewalks especially if you have a bus stop in front of your home.  If you need help with this, please let us know!

Volunteers are also needed to help clear elderly neighbors’ driveways.

Other Snow Safety Tips

  • Remember to clear off your license plates!  You can get pulled over and sited if your license plate is not visible.
  • Keep us informed of any damaged street/traffic signs so we can alert members and make sure these are repaired by the city.
  • Be careful of pot holes!  We are seeing some deep pot holes pop up. 
  • Did you know that when shoveling, the weight of light fluffy snow is about 10 lbs?  Did you also know that when shoveling, the weight of slushy/wet snow is close to 20 lbs?  Residents are encouraged to take shoveling in stride.  If you need to take a break, please do so.  If you need help with your driveway, please ask for help and we will get you signed up on our snow removal assistance program.

Please see the Snow Warriors Fact Sheet below for the City of Columbus' complete guidelines on snow removal.
