Did you know your responsibility does not end at the front door?

Homeowners and business owners have year-round responsibilities that help keep our City safe and clean. By practicing a few common courtesies, traveling around Downtown Omaha can be better for everyone!
  • Clear sidewalks promptly; especially if your walk is next to a busy road. If pedestrians are forced to walk in the street, accidents can occur. Sidewalks should be cleared away from the street rather than pushing snow back towards the street.
  • Clear snow around mailboxes and fire hydrants. Do not bury hydrants with snow from walks or drives.
  • Be a good neighbor. The good deed will be returned. Whether it is running the snow blower a few extra feet down your neighbor's walk or making sure you do not blow snow on your neighbor's already-cleared walkway, these considerations will be remembered.
  • If your home has stairs or steep walks, consider using ice melt. It will prevent snow from thawing and refreezing creating a very treacherous condition.
The City is responsible for clearing the streets.

The Downtown Improvement District clears pedestrian walkways within the street. If you notice some trouble areas, please contact us at 402-916-1796.
