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.
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.
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.
