Business and Residents are Responsible for Removing Snow and Ice from the Sidewalks During the Winter

Chicago businesses have a responsibility in removing snow and ice from the sidewalks. Many people rely on walking and transit as their primary mode of transportation, and without a wide, clear path through snow and ice, travel is especially difficult for people with disabilities, seniors, and children to walk safely. According to the Municipal Code of Chicago (4-4-310 & 10-8-180), property owners and occupants are responsible for keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice.

From more information on sidewalk snow removal guidance for residents and businesses, CLICK HERE. Report property owners who DO NOT clear their sidewalks by making a "Snow - Uncleared Sidewalk" request with the City of Chicago 311 Service Request line. Dial 311 or click on Online Snow - Uncleared Sidewalk Request. Additionally, the City's snow plow tracker will be available during major snow events. During snow storms, the City's snow plows are constantly tracked, so you, your business and your customers know when the streets around your business have been cleared.
