Champaign Sidewalk Snow Removal Ordinance In Effect

January 21, 2011

Due to this week's snowfall, Champaign City officials have once again activated their sidewalk snow removal ordinance, as of Friday, Jan. 21 at 11:30 AM.

The ordinance can go in effect whenever the city receives two inches or more of sidewalk snow accumulation.

Property owners in Champaign's Downtown and Campustown areas have 48 hours to clear their sidewalks of snow and ice --- in this case until Sunday, Jan. 23 at 11:30 AM. If sidewalks are not cleared by that time, they could be cleared by the city at the owner's expense.

Details about the ordinance and maps of the Downtown and Campustown areas can be found on the City of Champaign website.
