Snow plowing is started when there is one inch of snow on the ground. A special effort is made to clear areas as early as possible for residents that may leave for work at an early hour. Walks are shoveled, and an ice-melting compound will be spread, when the roadway and garage driveways are cleared. Unmarked parking spaces are cleared after the shoveling is completed. Additional clearing will be made during the day, or evening to keep the Crescent open, if the snowfall is heavy.
Car owners should move their cars during the day to insure that their assigned spaces are plowed. Owners should use unmarked parking spaces, park on Van Ness Avenue, or use the professional building parking lot, until their assigned spaces are cleared. Cars parked along the curb make plowing difficult. Garages and all parking spaces should be used when snow is predicted.
