City of Vancouver Snow Removal...
Below is some background information on the City’s Snow Response that I was asked to send to our Brit Neighbours Group. I have phoned 3-1-1 and have gotten the Greenway added to the list of City-owned properties that require special attention (since we are an emergency access route, and the entrance to an elementary school as well as a secondary school, a public library, a seniors centre, and a community centre).
We are encouraging community groups to get the message out to clear their sidewalks, help neighbours who are unable to clear their sidewalks and provide the messages below. The City’s snow clearing priorities include major roads, bus routes, bridges, emergency access routes, the 15 most used bike routes, and sidewalks around schools and hospitals. As mentioned, if additional help is needed for snow removal in the area normally maintained by Britannia Neighbours volunteers please contact 3-1-1 or report through the VanConnect App or on the City’s website. The area can be added to the list of City-owned properties that require additional attention for snow clearing and sand/salt application. Also, please let your group know about the Snow Angel program and how to request help or become a volunteer.
