Keep Sidewalks Clear
Please keep in mind that keeping sidewalks clear does not just mean clear of snow. Please keep bushes and grass from impeding sidewalk traffic. It is especially important to maintain the full width of the sidewalk in order to accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. You can be ticketed for not keeping your sidewalk clear.

Keep it Clean
Walkers please be courteous to those who are responsible for the sidewalks. Don't litter and please pick up after your dog.
The Value of Sidewalks
It’s been proven that walking is good for your health both physical and mental. More and more research is showing the importance of getting out of our chairs and going for a walk. Some people have no choice but to walk or use a wheelchair to get from place to place. It has also been found that home values increase in areas that are considered “walkable”. Please do your part to keep our sidewalks and trails in good repair and we'll try to make sure you have good sidewalks and trails to use.
