[ARCHIVED] Lombard Village Code helps ensure better pedestrian access after snowfall

In response to citizen and property owner requests, the Village reviewed and updated its Code in 2018, related to the removal of snow and ice on public sidewalks. The amendments are aimed at improving the safety of sidewalk segments that are commonly utilized by pedestrians. 

When snowfall occurs, Village Code requires a path clearance minimum of 3 feet wide. The Code also requires that property owners are responsible to clear abutting sidewalks, as well as the sidewalk areas that lead up to intersections on corners.

Village Code has previously required public sidewalk clearing for all commercial properties in Lombard, regardless of location. The amended Code provisions will require the clearing of all public sidewalks along the following street segments, regardless of the zoning designation:

  • Snow Code (JPG)St. Charles Road from Elizabeth Street to Martha Street;
  • Main Street from Grove Avenue to Washington Boulevard;
  • Park Avenue from Orchard Terrace to McGuire Drive; and
  • Westmore-Meyers Road from Division Street to North Broadway.

Clearing of sidewalks will be required within 24 hours of the end of each snow event. Failure to do so may result in follow up action from the Village’s Code Enforcement  staff.

Please contact Code Enforcement at (630)620-5757 for more information.
