Promoting Pedestrian Safety After Snowfall
To help ensure safety on sidewalk segments that are commonly utilized by pedestrians, the Village reminds businesses and property owners of sidewalk snow clearing requirements.
Commercial Property Sidewalks
After snowfall, Village Code requires commercial property owners to clear a path of at least 5 feet wide on sidewalks abutting their property. This includes sidewalk areas that lead to intersections at corners.
Downtown Lombard Sidewalks
Additionally, Code provisions require all property owners (residential and commercial) to clear snow from the sidewalk areas listed below, that are commonly used by pedestrians and commuters. These areas include:
- 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.
