Spring Street Sweeping

The DPW&P strives to reach the best possible balance when notifying the public of the upcoming street sweeping schedule. We wish to give residents enough notice to sweep sidewalks and place debris in the street gutter, but also not to impose longer than necessary on-street parking restrictions.

Generally, notice is given 1-2 days in advance. However, a variety of factors may impact our ability to sweep streets such as inclement weather, etc. We appreciate resident cooperation for the duration of the program.

The annual Spring Street Sweeping program typically starts the first week in April and takes 8 to 10 weeks to complete, depending on weather.
