Snow Removal

Public Streets

Douglas County is responsible for snow removal on all public streets – their policies on snow removal can be found on the County’s website.

Sidewalks & Driveways

Per the Douglas County Code, “Residents are responsible for clearing driveways and sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowstorm to allow safe use by pedestrians. It is required that owners place snow from their driveways and sidewalks onto their front yard and not into the street”.

Common Areas & Trails

The Sterling Ranch CAB will be removing snow in CAB maintained areas around the community as follows:             

  • Plowing of sidewalks, mailbox kiosks, parking lots, alleyways, and shared drives when snow accumulation reaches 2 inches.
  • Plowing of the Regional Trail begins at 4-inch accumulation.
  • If snow does not reach the 2-inch threshold, sidewalks and mail kiosks will be plowed anyway within 24 hours after the snow event stops per Douglas County code.
  • Ice melt/sand will be applied in areas identified for the safety of the residents.
  • Please be sure to remove your vehicle from motor courts, alleyways, shared driveways, and county streets. This allows for a clear path for plows to remove snow and perform ice mitigation.
  • Elements: Do not park in the backout areas at the end of the driveways. The backout areas are designated as NO parking areas.
