Champaign Lifts One Snow Ordinance, Activates Another
By Jeff Bossert
The City of Champaign has de-activated its emergency snow routes, but activated its ordinance requiring Downtown and Campustown sidewalks to be cleared.
The sidewalk ordinance went into effect at 11 a.m. Friday. It requires sidewalks to be cleared 48 hours after the declaration.
Sidewalks must maintain a path the wide of the sidewalk or 48”, whichever is less. Those not in compliance could be cleared at the owner’s expense.
As of 10:45 Friday morning, the prohibited parking ban on the following routes has been lifted:
-University Ave. from State St. to Mattis Ave.
-Church Street from State St. to Mattis Ave.
-State Street from Bradley Ave. to Kirby Ave.
-Randolph Street from Bradley Ave. to Hessel Blvd.
-Hessel Boulevard from State St. to Neil St.
