Cordillera's Community Operations maintains the streets throughout the community. Plow crews are on duty seven days a week prepared to plow when there is a half-inch (½ inch) or more of snow accumulation on the roads or if icy conditions exist.
Be cautious around plows:
• Slow down and give snow plow tucks ample space to maneuver freely. Plow trucks are large vehicles that do not slow down, stop or turn as quickly as cars and trucks.
• Avoid driving alongside the plows. Because of the height and length of the plow trucks, a plow driver's field of vision is limited; you may not be seen by the driver.
• Never pass a snowplow on the right as you will be caught in hard snow, ice and rock thrown by the plow blade.
Property owners are responsible for maintaining their own driveways and parking areas following a storm. Snow removal contractors must register with the Cordillera Metropolitan District to operate within the community and display the service sticker in their vehicle window. There is no cost to register.
Plowing or shoveling snow onto streets or public rights-of-way from adjacent properties is not allowed. Snow removal activities must not obstruct line-of-sight or traffic flow, and access to fire hydrants, and the cleared spaces around hydrants and utility boxes must be maintained.
