Cambridge Continues to Allow Uncleared Snow to Block Access to Sidewalks

The City of Cambridge has chosen the local option of assigning snow removal from sidewalks and curb ramps to abuters. However, the City fails to employ effective enforcement. Of the hundreds of properties that failed to clear snow from the sidewalks abutting their properties I have chosen the following three of the worst offenders. These three all on corners of busy pedestrian ways, illustrate the problem well. Property owners are required to clear a path 36" wide, on the sidewalks abbuting their properties. That means that folks on a corner must do sidewalks on both sides of their properties, as well as the curb ramps.

Boy do you get a lot of snow. It makes our two day sprinkling look quite insubstantial. Bet it gets to be a real pain after a while if you are trying to get places.
