Snow and Winter Reminders from Code Enforcement
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.
When snowfall occurs, Village Code requires a path clearance minimum of 5 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 requires public sidewalk clearing for all commercial properties in Lombard, regardless of location. Additionally, Code provisions require the clearing of all public sidewalks along the following street segments, regardless of the zoning designation:
- 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.
