Snow Removal

Plow smarter

1. One pass on a residential street is not enough. We need 2 lanes, or at least frequent turnouts to enable cars to pass each other.

2. Reemphasize parking on only one side of street, even or odd, based on the year. e.g., park on even side in year 2010. Plow to curb on nonparking side.

3. This year is an anomaly - two huge storms a few days apart. Have a separate policy/strategy for disaster events, another for more routine events.

4. Teach contractors how to plow, so that we are not trapped by mounds of snow. Maybe a plow should be accompanied by a Bobcat or other snow mover.
