There are several things we want you to be aware of and request of you in anticipation of a major snow event.
- Please stay off the roads and postpone travel if you can. Give our city services and snow removal contractors as much free space as possible to clear our roads.
- To the extent possible and once the snow starts, please have family members and visitors park on your driveway and not the streets. We would like our snow removal contractor to be able to clear the streets from curb to curb.
- Once the snowplows have plowed your street, please direct the snow from your snowblowers, shovels, etc., onto your yard or the strip of grass between your sidewalk and not the street.
- Here’s a tip on how to reduce the amount of snow the plows leave at the end of your driveway. Always pile snow to the right side of your driveway (as you look at the street from your driveway) (see graphic below). If possible, consider waiting to clear your own driveway and sidewalks until the street is done – it may save you time and effort by only having to do it once…
- If your mailbox is damaged and/or if your yard is “peeled up” by a snowplow driver, please report it here. If you witness the incident that causes damage, please try to identify whether it’s a city snowplow – normally a red vehicle with a Fishers City emblem on the door – or an “unmarked” plow.
- Many have commented on the amount of ice on our roads after last weekend. These concerns have been communicated to the city and our snow removal contractor. It’s important be aware there are numerous variables that make each snow event unique and challenging. Factors like temperatures leading up to the event, consistency of snow/ice during the event, the rate of precipitation, the duration of the snow event, traffic volume, temperatures following the event, etc., all have an impact on how well the roads get cleared and stay cleared.
Please know that our HOA is working with the city and our neighborhood snow removal contractor to ensure our roads are as safe as they can be, all things considered. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work on your behalf.
