Please have a safe and fun Super Bowl Sunday! Be sure to remind everyone that "Fans Don't Let Fans Drive Drunk."

Enjoy responsibly with these tips:

Hosts:
-Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers before kick-off or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.
-Serve plenty of food.
-Offer a variet of non-alcoholic choices like soft drinks, juice, and water.
-Determine ahead of time when you’ll stop serving alcohol, such as one hour before the party ends or at the end of the third quarter (just like NFL stadiums) and begin serving coffee and dessert.
-Add the numbers of local cab companies into your phone so they are just one touch away.
-Take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired.
-Be prepared for guests to spend the night if an alternative way home is not available.

Guests:
-Designate your sober driver before the party begins and leave your car keys at home if you plan to drink.
-Before you go out, add the numbers for local cab companies in your cell phone so if you find yourself in need of a ride, it is just one touch away.
-Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself—eat enough food, take breaks and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks.
-Take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired. Remember, Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk.
-Always buckle up – it’s your best defense on the road.

Reminder - There will be an open house for the Sunset Heights Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program tomorrow, Wednesday, January 30 from 4:30-6:30pm:Members of the public are invited to an informational meeting regarding a neighborhood traffic calming plan for the Sunset Heights neighborhood on Wednesday, January 30th from 5:00pm until 6:30pm at the Cecil F. Gilkerson Community Activities Center at Westover Park, 305 S. Dogwood Drive. The meeting will be an open house format to share and receive feedback on a phased approach to reducing speeding and cut‐through traffic and increasing compliance with traffic controls in the neighborhood. The Harrisonburg Department of Public Works and the Harrisonburg Police Department have been working with the residents of the Sunset Heights neighborhood since 2015 to find solutions to the speeding cut-through traffic problems occurring between W. Market Street and S. High Street, after previous efforts to increase fines for speeding in the neighborhood fell short of solving these traffic issues. City Council voted on June 26th, 2018 to formally enroll the neighborhood in the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program, after the neighborhood took prerequisite steps for enrollment. The purpose of the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program is to address problems related to speeding and cut‐through traffic conditions in residential neighborhoods. Traffic Calming focuses on slowing traffic without excessively restricting movement. Additional information is available at https://www.harrisonburgva.gov/neighborhood-traffic-calming-program ...

Members of the public are invited to an informational meeting regarding a neighborhood traffic calming plan for the Sunset Heights neighborhood on Wednesday, January 30th from 5:00pm until 6:30pm at the Cecil F. Gilkerson Community Activities Center at Westover Park, 305 S. Dogwood Drive.
The meeting will be an open house format to share and receive feedback on a phased approach to reducing speeding and cut‐through traffic and increasing compliance with traffic controls in the neighborhood.

The Harrisonburg Department of Public Works and the Harrisonburg Police Department have been working with the residents of the Sunset Heights neighborhood since 2015 to find solutions to the speeding cut-through traffic problems occurring between W. Market Street and S. High Street, after previous efforts to increase fines for speeding in the neighborhood fell short of solving these traffic issues. City Council voted on June 26th, 2018 to formally enroll the neighborhood in the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program, after the neighborhood took prerequisite steps for enrollment.
The purpose of the City’s Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program is to address problems related to speeding and cut‐through traffic conditions in residential neighborhoods. Traffic Calming focuses on slowing traffic without excessively restricting movement.

Help keep Harrisonburg pedestrian friendly today by making sure your sidewalks are clear of snow!

Harrisonburg is a pedestrian‐friendly city and it is important to have clear sidewalks year‐round. If a pedestrian encounters a snow covered sidewalk, they may be inclined to walk in the roadway, which could pose a safety hazard.
According to City Code Section 6-1-15, with this snowfall being greater than six inches, residents, business owners, and property owners must clear snow from the sidewalk in front of their home or business within 36 hours of when the snowfall stopped.
If the occupant or property owner fails to clean off the sidewalk, a notice of violation will be given. After 24 hours of the notice being given, if the sidewalk is still not clear, the City will clear the sidewalk at the owner's expense.

Snow Removal from Driveways Tip
Snowplows push snow, they do not remove it. Snow mounds are created each time the trucks plow the street, including the final pass after the snow stops falling. Unfortunately, if you clear the snow mounds before the final pass, trucks will create another snow mound on its next pass.
If you must shovel before that final pass, it will help if you shovel snow to the right side of your driveway as you stand facing the street. It also helps to clear an area to the left of your driveway (hashed area in diagram) to give the snow blade of the plow a place to empty before it gets to your driveway. This way you won't have to do the same job twice. Remember to stretch, take breaks, and stay dry as you work on digging your way out of the snow.
Please do not throw shoveled snow into the street. Depositing snow or ice into a plowed street causes severe safety hazards for motorists.
The City also encourages neighbors to check in on one another and offer assistance to the elderly or those who are not physically able to clear the sidewalk.

When is the City going to address the scooter problem blocking our Sidewalks and Handicap ramps?

Most city roads remain in minor conditions today, however some roads and residential streets are in moderate conditions.

Minor - Bare pavement except for icy spots - major portion of pavement bare with isolated spots of snow, ice, or slush requiring caution.

Moderate - Snow or ice on pavement, major portions of pavement covered with snow or heavy slush. Chains or snow tires are advisable for safe travel.

Crews continue to work to get streets clear. There is still a chance for more snow today, so if you must travel, please use caution. Stay safe!

The City of Harrisonburg is prepared for the pending winter weather to arrive and encourages residents, businesses, and property owners to do the same.

Public Works crews have checked equipment, stocked supplies, and will continue to monitor road conditions and temperatures until the end of the weather event.

City crews respond around the clock in 12-hour shifts to plow snow and ice from streets and some high-priority sidewalks.
During a winter storm, snow removal crews give first priority to the main thoroughfares and main routes to the hospital, rescue squad, fire stations, and public transit routes. Once the priority streets are clear, crews then begin working in the residential neighborhoods.

The City asks residents to keep in mind the following guidelines for driving and parking in winter conditions:
-Avoid parking on the street, if possible.
-Avoid unnecessary travel when crews are clearing snow and ice from the roadways.
-Do not attempt to pass snowplows and stay at least 100 feet behind them.
-Keep a safe distance when traveling behind other vehicles.
-Be aware of potentially icy areas such as shady spots and bridges.

Residents are also reminded to shovel snow to the left side of your driveway (if standing at the bottom of your driveway, looking from the street to your home). This way, when the snowplows come through the streets the snow is not plowed to block the driveway.

After the snow stops falling, residents and property owners are responsible for clearing snow from sidewalks in front of their homes or businesses.
Property owners have 24 hours to remove snow if it is six inches deep or less. In the event of a significant snowfall of six inches or more, property owners have 36 hours to clear the sidewalks. The time begins after the snow has stopped falling.

Additional information on the City’s snow and ice program is available at www.HarrisonburgVA.gov/snow-plow

The City of Harrisonburg Recycling Convenience Center has an exciting new addition! Gift & Thrift has provided a clothing donation station for collection of lightly‐used clothing.
Sanitation staff recognized that reusable items such as clothing were often brought to the Recycling Convenience Center or placed curbside without an avenue for reuse and reached out to area thrift stores. “The addition of the donation bin is a great expansion of services. It promotes the City’s goals of reducing, reusing, and recycling and is a productive collaboration with the local Gift and Thrift organization!” said Harsit Patel, Business Services Manager at Public Works.
The station will be available for use during regular Recycling Convenience Center operations; Monday through Friday 8am‐4pm and Saturday 8am‐noon. For more information visit:

Sanitation staff recognized that reusable items such as clothing were often brought to the Recycling Convenience Center or placed curbside without an avenue for reuse and reached out to area thrift stores. “The addition of the donation bin is a great expansion of services. It promotes the City’s goals of reducing, reusing, and recycling and is a productive collaboration with the local Gift and Thrift organization!” said Harsit Patel, Business Services Manager at Public Works.
The station will be available for use during regular Recycling Convenience Center operations; Monday through Friday 8am‐4pm and Saturday 8am‐noon. For more information visit:

I just dropped off my recycling today, saw the bin and wondered where the clothing would be going! This makes taking my recycling to the center a little less annoying!
