Shovel Snowdown


October 2, 2019 | LSC Plaza | 11:30am

Did you know the City of Fort Collins has a snow shoveling ordinance that requires city residents to shovel the public sidewalk adjacent to their property within 24 hours after snow accumulation? Read more about the ordinance here:

To help off-campus students learn more about the ordinance and receive a free snow shovel, Colorado State University's Off-Campus Life and the City of Fort Collins' Neighborhood Services are excited to partner for the annual Shovel Snowdown event. 

Shovel Snowdown is an event designed for off-campus students who are required to the shovel the public sidewalk adjacent to their property after a snow storm. Not sure if you're required to shovel your sidewalk? First check with your apartment complex or HOA. Don't have one? Call Neighborhood Services to check: 970-224-6046.

Off-Campus Life and Neighborhood Services staff will be giving away 400 FREE SNOW SHOVELS to off-campus students who are required to shovel their sidewalk on October 2 at 11:30am. We will be giving away the snow shovels until we run out. 

This event is popular. We recommend lining up in advance to make sure you get your shovel! You will need your RamCard (Student ID) with you, and staff will be verifying your off-campus address. If you are not required to shovel your sidewalk this year, please plan to attend this event in a future year when you live in a residence that does require you to shovel.
