Snow Removal Info & Winter Weather Tips

Greenwich Municipal Code 14-39 through 14-42:
Snow Alter/Snow Emergency and No Parking on Snow Routes - Schedule XXI - Snow Route Street

Plow Routes: The Town of Greenwich maintains 265.3 miles of public accepted roadways, 33 municipal and commuter parking lots and 14 Board of Education School facilities. Main, collector roads are addressed first with special attention to steep hills and difficult intersections. Other roads follow as part of 26 individual routes.

Blocked Driveways: All snow plows angle the same way, to the driver's right, and when going by they will push the snow in front of a driveway. The homeowner is responsible for access to his driveway. The only way to avoid extra shoveling is to wait until DPW crews have done their final clean up on the street.

Sidewalks: In accordance with Town ordinance, Greenwich property owners are responsible for keeping all sidewalks along their property clear of snow and ice. Heavily used sidewalks near schools and along state highways are particularly important.

Mailbox Damage: The Town repairs or replaces only mailboxes and/or posts that are actually struck by a plow blade. Usually a paint mark or truck tire tracks supply evidence of a mailbox strike. The Town does not repair or replace mailboxes and/or posts that fall from the force of plowed snow. Mailboxes and supporting posts must be installed to withstand the rigors of snow removal, including the force of snow pushed from the street onto the roadside and should be located in such a way as to minimize damage.

Private Plowing: The Town of Greenwich prohibits plow contractors from pushing snow from driveways or parking lots onto Town streets. This practice is dangerous and impedes the Town's snow removal efforts. If there is no other alternative to pushing snow into the street, the private plow driver must plow off the windrow left across the street by re-plowing until the road is safe.
