Buildings and Grounds: A note on snow removal

The cooperation and patience of members and other users of our campus when we have snow days will be appreciated.

  • Every effort will be made to ensure that the perimeter and interior sidewalks of the campus will be clear and accessible.
  • Assume that the parking lot will not be accessible and/or it will be up to vehicle owners to determine whether or not to use it.

Many efforts have been made over the years to arrange the equipment and person-power to clear the whole site of snow. None have been found to be satisfactory. Cost of equipment – whether our own or contracted – and people availability (staff and volunteer) are the factors.

A snow-clearing route map has been prepared for the walkways. An information note is available for obtaining shovels. People are welcome to sign-up for voluntary snow clearing to complement what staff can do within their own availability, work schedules and duties.

Your help will be appreciated! (Contact: Patti Turner at pgaleturner[at]gmail[dot]com)
