OSHAWA – Launched as a pilot project in January 2021, the City continues to provide sidewalk snow clearing within the downtown boundary.
The City deploys sidewalk plows to the area to clear snow and ice. The standard to complete this operation is by midnight the day after the storm has ended.
Downtown business and property owners are still responsible to clear snow and ice from in front and alongside of their property including the entry way, sidewalk, path and boulevard after a snowfall.
