Centennial news in a hurry

Posted

Best of snow recognized

Centennial residents nominated 128 fellow citizens for showing off their snowmanship over the past year by voluntarily clearing snow and ice from sidewalks and parking lots. The volunteer activity was part of the city’s inaugural Snow Hero program.

Community input regarding snow removal prompted the creation of the program that honored those who stepped up to the shovel. Centennial does not have a formal snow removal ordinance but encourages all citizens to voluntarily shovel walks within 24 hours of a snowstorm.

Since the program’s launch, snow removal requests to the city have decreased by 75 percent. For a complete list of this year’s Snow Heroes or to learn more about the program, visit www.centennialcolorado.com and enter “snow hero” in the search block.
