Additional Information

Shoveling Your Sidewalk

Residents and businesses are urged to do their part and clear the snow from their sidewalks.  Large amounts of snow make it difficult for children trying to go to school, seniors and any pedestrian trying to maneuver the sidewalks covered with snow.

Per City Ordinance 521.06 – Every property is required to remove and keep clear, snow and ice from all sidewalks, paths, and/or drives on all areas abutting the property.  Landlords are responsible for making sure their properties get shoveled.

To report problems relating to clearing snow from sidewalks, click here to use our Report A Problem form or contact the Division of Housing and Building at 216-529-6270 or

Help do your part to keep Lakewood a year round walkable community and clear your sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowfall.
