Winter Watch Information for Duluth Residents
The City of Duluth reminds residents of important winter expectations
Winter has arrived in Duluth, and the City of Duluth is reminding residents of the partnership between themselves, businesses, and the City Street Maintenance team. While many are getting out and enjoying the fun winter activities, navigating streets and/or sidewalks can always pose a challenge.
A city crews are out plowing 500 miles of roads and clearing nearly 100 miles of sidewalks, residents are asked to help by following some simple do’s and don’t’s to ensure safety for everyone.
Duluth has a City Ordinance, Chapter 45 Article VI, which requires property owners with a public sidewalk abutting their property to remove snow and ice within 24-hours after a snowfall. Please do not plow snow into the street; this is a violation and will result in a fine.
To help keep streets plowed, residents and visitors who use on-street parking, must follow alternate side parking schedules. The changeover occurs every Sunday evening. The week of November 21st is currently an ODD side parking schedule.
Garbage and recycling bins should be placed on the boulevard or on a driveway, but never in the street. These bins become obstacles to snow plow operations not to mention the possibly of garbage being strewn about when bins fall over.
