Snow Removal in Daybreak

Snow pushing does not occur for accumulation under 2". Contractors will be dispatched when 2" of snow has accumulated, or at the end of each snow event, depending of the conditions of the snow event. Based on the crews 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.

 

The city's Public Works Department operates snow pushing services throughout the winter on the public streets and alley ways. The City dispatches crews after at least one inch of snow has accumulated on the roads.

 

Neighborhood Associations

 

Village community homes, townhomes, condominium owners, 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.

 

 

 

Parking During a Snow Event

 

From November 1st - March 1st, when there is 1" or more of snow accumulated on the road cars must be parked as follows beginning at 8:00 am during the snow event and for 72 hours following the snow event.  

  • On ODD numbered calendar days cars must be moved to the side of the street with ODD house numbers.
  • On EVEN numbered calendar days cars must be moved to the side of the street with EVEN house numbers.

 

Exceptions will be made for loading and unloading for no more than 30 minutes. See City Municipal Code 10.20.010 for further details.

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 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.
