Dunno whether the self-storage place next door plows their own parking lot or hires it done, but either way I bet they’re not thrilled.
I’m not sure who ought to clear the sidewalk on Route 45 near Curtis, but somebody should. I’m fit enough to clamber over three-foot snow walls blocking crosswalks, but hundreds of my neighbors are not. @Applebees @cvspharmacy @SchnuckMarkets
I’m not sure who ought to clear the sidewalk on Curtis Road next to the U of I Solar Farm, but somebody should. I’m fit enough to trudge through the 12-inch snow, but hundreds of my neighbors are not. @UofIllinois
So this is great and all, but how lame is it that we need a volunteer program to clear sidewalks? Isn’t this something that the land owners should have been doing right along?
C-U Safe Routes to School Project is launching a volunteer snow removal program with the support of MTD and the Urbana School District. When snow remains on sidewalks and builds up to block sidewalks, ramps, and intersections, the daily journeys of students and other community members become more dangerous as they must move into the street to find a clear path. This includes our riders.
