Safe Winter Walkways

Preparing snow routes for pedestrian traffic

The Lawrence community depends on residents to remove snow from public sidewalks. We believe sidewalks remain in use in all weather conditions. During winter months, many Lawrence residents must be able to safely use public sidewalks: children walking to neighborhood schools, students walking to both campuses, employees going to work and families enjoying the fresh air all require safe walkways free of snow.

Safe Winter Walkways is a program provided by the City of Lawrence and the Douglas County Senior Services, Inc.

This year, a deadline was set for signing up for the program.  This deadline was November 29, 2013.  We have more requests for service than we have volunteers at this time.  We will reopen this program in September 2014 for the next season.
