For sidewalk snow removal, which sidewalks are a resident’s responsibility, and which are the City’s?

Property owners must take care of removing snow and ice from sidewalks adjoining their properties within 48 hours of a winter storm.

The City maintains a portion of sidewalks in Edina, such as state aid roads, active routes to school and those within City parks or recreation facilities. These sidewalks are taken care of once the streets have been plowed.
