Sidewalk Snow Clearing Bylaw Reminder Be a Good Neighbour - Help Make Sidewalks Accessible for All
With snow in the forecast and winter approaching, the City of Regina reminds residents to clear snow and ice from sidewalks. Grab a shovel and make a safer walk for your neighbours, whether on foot, using a mobility device or pushing a stroller.
Sidewalks need to be maintained as even, walkable surfaces. Snow and ice must be cleared to the edges of the sidewalk and as close to the concrete as possible. To help with icy sidewalks, the City offers free sand/salt mix to aid residential property owners in providing traction. Sandbox locations can be found on the website.
Throughout the city, most property owners need to clear sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours following a snow or ice event. Properties located within Schedule B of The Clean Property Bylaw are required to clear sidewalks within 24 hours. This area is primarily located within the Downtown.
Should enforcement be required, City staff will issue a Notice of Non-Compliance to the property owner to clear the sidewalk in a specified timeframe. If the property owner does not comply, the City will take action to have the sidewalks cleared and the costs applied to their property taxes.
Regina’s sidewalk snow clearing regulations came into effect on January 1, 2022. Sidewalk Snow Clearing is a provision of The Clean Property Bylaw.
