Winter Sidewalk Snow Removal Requirements In Washtenaw County

E-mail Print


Are you tired of trying to walk on sidewalks that haven't been cleared of snow and ice? Do you want to help keep local sidewalks safer for everyone else this winter? Local snow removal ordinances can be your most valuable tools (besides a snow shovel) for accomplishing this, because they help you understand what to do and who to contact if the sidewalks we all use aren't being properly maintained.

Please note that many Townships in Washtenaw County (such as Ann Arbor Township, Scio Township, Ypsilanti Township, etc.) do not have any type of snow removal ordinance.

E-mail Print

From the Ann Arbor News, January 10, 2015

Construction on two separate pathway projects on Textile and South Grove roads is done, completing a full non-motorized loop around Ford Lake. The approximatel 9-mile loop consists of different sections of pathways, sidewalks, bike lanes and nature trails.

Township Clerk Karen Lovejoy Roe highlighted the route's views and natural beauty, which she says is unmatched in Washtenaw County. "It's unique because of Ford Lake. Ford Lake is one of the best kept secrets in Washtenaw County," she says. "The bike paths and sidewalks provide great views and direct access to the lake and the many parks that surround Ford Lake, including the bridges and boardwalks located directly on it."
