Current Phase
Community Engagement

Project Overview

The city is conducting an analysis of its current Snow and Ice Response Program, which will include several community engagement opportunities.

Engagement Opportunities

The latest round of community engagement ended in mid-February 2024. The opportunity focused on gathering feedback about potential changes to the program, which were developed after thorough analysis of the current program coupled with community input.

Community feedback will be used to help inform the program review. Implementation of proposed changes to the program is dependent on available resources and may occur next winter at the earliest.

First Round Engagement Results

The first round of engagement took place in early 2023. The focus of this round was to connect with the community to increase awareness of where snow and ice response services are delivered.

Over 600 community members weighed in with feedback. The next engagement opportunity will take place this fall.


Plowing snow and ice in Boulder is a partnership between multiple city departments, including Transportation and Mobility, Parks and Recreation and Code Enforcement, local partners and private property owners. The review is focused on potential changes to snow and ice clearing on streets, bus stops, multi-use paths, the bike network and shoveled areas maintained by the city’s Transportation and Mobility Department.
