Central Street Evanston does not provide snow removal service to the business district. It is the responsibility of businesses, residents and landlords to remove snow and ice from sidewalks after a snow event. Below is a summary of the City of Evanston's ordinance.
Sidewalks should be completely cleared to allow everyone, including people with disabilities, children walking to school and the elderly, to travel freely using the sidewalks instead of the street.
Businesses are responsible for clearing sidewalks adjacent to their property; snow should be removed a minimum of 36” away from the building to avoid citation.
Snow should be removed so as to not block any public right of way (alleys, sidewalks, fire hydrants and streets).
If you need assistance finding a company to clear snow for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
