Snow Angels - Neighbours Helping Neighbours

For some, the first snow fall of the year is exciting – but for others, snow brings worries of slipping and falling. Clearing snow is important for pedestrian safety and mobility, particularly children and seniors. The City of Penticton's Good Neighbour Bylaw asks that property owners clear their sidewalks of snow and ice before 11:00 am following the snow event.

Keeping sidewalks shovelled, ice-free and safe can be very challenging – even dangerous – for older adults and others who have limited mobility. Snow Angels is a program that encourages Penticton residents to be good neighbours and help neighbours in need with snow removal.

What does it take to be a Snow Angel? All you have to do is adopt a sidewalk this winter and keep it clear. Watch for people in your neighbourhood who could use help removing snow & ice from their sidewalks and driveways and ask if you can lend them a hand.

Snow Angels can be nominated to win prizes! Nominate your Snow Angel by calling the Public Works Department (250)490-2500. For information, visit
