Denver requires property owners to clear their walkways so that EVERYONE has safe access throughout the City! Senior citizens, people with disabilities, parents with strollers, and mail carriers -just to name a few -struggle to negotiate hazardous walkways. We need to do our part to make our community safe and accessible for all.

  • Timing: Once snow has stopped falling, businesses have four (4) hours, and residents have twenty-four (24) hours, to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks adjacent to their property
  • Report A Problem: Please contact Denver 3-1-1 to provide the address of unshoveled sidewalks. 
  • Enforcement: Denver relies on citizen complaints to help us identify those property owners that need to be educated about sidewalk safety requirements.
