City of Green Bay official street right-of-way (a.k.a. – terrace area) extends anywhere from 6 to 20 feet behind the curb, depending on the type of street. This extra space allows for placement of utilities, signs, street lights, traffic signals, trees, and storage of plowed snow. Unfortunately for residents, driveway aprons (located in the terrace) are an official street plowing snow storage location.
Residents do not have to shovel their driveway or driveway apron. If they do, it is the resident’s responsibility to move their driveway snow to another location. Per City ordinance, driveway and sidewalk snow cannot be placed into the roadway. It must be stored on the terrace or in the front yard. Citations can be issued to residents who place snow back into the roadway.
