Reminders: Snow shoveling and snow removal resident responsibilities
As Altoona continues to grow, the map of trails and sidewalks it maintains also changes. Two such changes made this year include the elimination of maintained school routes along sidewalks, as students are no longer traveling a single main path to approach schools; and the ending of the city shoveling some six-foot wide sidewalks. With more than 124 miles of sidewalk in Altoona, city staff and resources are needed to maintain the trails and other properties in the community and cannot also maintain the more than 20 miles of six-foot wide sidewalk.
These efforts also standardize the shoveling policies for all residents, providing equity in responsibility amongst neighbors and neighborhoods. Please review the map to ensure you are correctly maintaining sidewalks on your property. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
