Snow Events: What You Need to Know

The City of Eden Prairie is taking a new approach to informing residents of snow removal plans with Snow Event declarations in advance of winter weather.

How It Works
When the forecast indicates a snow accumulation of two inches or more, the City will declare a Snow Event.

When It Begins
As soon as snow accumulation reaches two inches, a Snow Emergency is in effect – if Eden Prairie does not receive two inches of snow, the Snow Event is canceled.

What to Do
During a Snow Emergency, do not park on City streets until noon the next day.

What Happens
Streets maintenance crews work to maintain safe and passable roadways throughout a Snow Event, and perform a full curb-to-curb cleanup from 3 a.m. – noon, weather permitting.

You can find Snow Event declarations posted at and social media platforms. You can also subscribe to receive email and text notifications.

Important Snow Removal Reminders

  • Place trash containers behind the curb line, not in the street.
  • Remove basketball hoops and any other objects from the street.
  • Help by shoveling around fire hydrants and mailboxes, and clearing nearby sidewalks.
  • It is illegal to place snow from your property onto the public roadway.
