The North Providence Police Department would like to remind our residents and business owners to please be considerate of pedestrians in town. There is a Town Ordinance that requires property owners to remove snow from the sidewalk in front of their home or business within 24 hours after the storm has ended.
Many residents and students depend on sidewalks to safely walk to school, go shopping or run errands. If the sidewalk is not cleared of ice or snow many of these individuals are forced to walk in the street. This creates a dangerous situation for both the pedestrian and motor vehicle operators.
Homeowners and other property owners are asked to please be considerate of your friends and neighbors in town. Promptly remove snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your property as soon as possible. With your cooperation and assistance we can make North Providence a safer community for everyone.
