Snow Removal in Daybreak

Below are some quick facts about snow removal in Daybreak. If you have any specific questions, please call the Daybreak Community Association at (801) 254-8062 and they will help navigate your request.

Snow pushing does not occur for accumulation under 2". Contractors will be dispatched when 2" or more has accumulated, or at the end of each snow event, depending on the conditions of the snow event. Based on the crew's starting location, you may not see them immediately. However, the crews will start at a different location each snow event to provide everyone an opportunity to have their snow cleared first.

It may be a good idea to keep a shovel on hand in the event of a snow emergency. As well, always exercise care and diligence when venturing out, even if it's just to get the mail, as moisture in the air combined with freezing temperatures can create the perfect conditions for ice to form. The Master Association provides snow and ice pushing on the sidewalks adjacent to the common areas. The walking trails through the parks and around the lake will not be cleared. These trails are great for snowshoeing or cross country skiing.

Single Family Homes
Each single-family homeowner is obligated to remove snow from their driveway, entry walks and the public sidewalks in front and on the side of their home. Be aware that the city street plows will leave a snow berm in front of your driveway as they clear the street and push snow from the center of the road.



Neighborhood Associations
Village community homes,  townhomes,  condominium owners,  SpringHouse Village, and Garden Park residents pay additional assessments to have these services provided to the common area driveways and walking paths within their complex. Contact your manager for more information.

CMA Ice Melt
Daybreak uses calcium magnesium acetate (CMA) to help prevent ice build up. CMA is thought to be more environmentally friendly than other products found on the market. as well as less corrosive to concrete, plants and sod. It is meant to be applied sparingly. To use, apply a thin, even layer to prevent ice build up and try to avoid using in excessive amounts. If you apply too much in an area. spread it out with a broom or flush it with water.

Pet Safety

Let's not forget about our four-legged Daybreak residents. Here are some tips for their comfort this winter:
- Always wipe your dog's paws with a moist towel after walking outside on snowy day.
- Don't let your dog lick ice melt or drink from puddles or slush pools when they are outside.     
- Trim the hair between the dog's toes to reduce mineral collection. or put doggie booties on all four paws as extra protection.
