      The snow is here! Help kids walking to school, seniors
      heading out for groceries, commuters on their way to
      public transportation--and everyone in the
      community--by clearing your sidewalk asap. It's not
      only the right thing to do--it's the law. A message
      from Logan Square Walks:

      Shovel It! Walk Winter in Chicago

      Snow and ice on sidewalks makes it difficult, even
      dangerous to get around in the Winter. This goes
      double for seniors and children whose mobility can be
      hit hard by un-cleared sidewalks.

      Help us to keep Chicago walking year-round by
      remembering to shovel the sidewalk in front of your
      house. And while you’re at it, why not help your
      neighbor with theirs too?

      But don’t take our word for it. Chicago’s Sidewalk
      Snow Removal Ordinance (0-8-180) requires that
      everyone "shall remove the snow and ice from the
      sidewalk…” and to use salt if the ice is stubborn.
      Failure to comply can result in an hefty ticket.


      And doing nothing isn’t an option! It’s a common
      misconception that attempting to remove snow and ice
      renders property owners liable. The State stepped in
      to clarify with the Illinois' Snow and Ice Removal Act
      (P.A. 86-1324.) (745 ILCS 75/1) which explains that
      anyone making a good faith effort to remove snow and
      ice “…shall not be liable for any personal injuries
      allegedly caused by the snowy or icy condition of the
      sidewalk…"

      If you see sidewalks that are consistently un-shoveled
      help to ensure year-round walking by calling 311. Be
      sure to have an address on hand.

      So, don’t forget to Shovel It! and thank you for
      helping Chicago Walk Winter.
