Trail and Sidewalk Snow Plowing

As snow accumulates on Beaumont’s trails and sidewalks, we begin plowing by prioritizing pedestrian safety, business areas, education facilities, and recreation facilities.  

Trails and sidewalks will be cleared to a “snow free surface”.  Wide trails and sidewalks will be plowed in “one pass” after snow fall to allow users a “snow free surface”.  Once all trails and sidewalks are given “one pass”, we will widen trails to edges using the service level priorities. 

There are two (2) service level priorities for plowing trails and sidewalks owned by Beaumont and not the responsibility of the adjacent homeowner to clear:

PriorityTrails and SidewalksSnow Conditions and Timeframe
1Designated locations on mapWithin 24 hours after 5 cm of snow fall or equivalent snow drift
2Designated locations on mapAfter Priority 1 is completed

We do not use sand or melting agents on trails and sidewalks.  Rock chips are used if trails and sidewalks become hazardous due to freezing rain or other such weather conditions.
