STOP PLOWS FROM BLOCKING IN DRIVEWAYS
Other cities are using newer equipment to prevent plotting in residential drives. As we are part of the snow belt, a bedroom community for Toronto and a tourist zone we need to be able to leave in the mornings after a storm. After we have already busted our backs shoveling or using blowers (therefore gas) moving the show. To wake up at 6am to find your work undone is infuriating to be polite.

Do you need help clearing the snow from the end of your driveway? Visit www.snowangelscanada.ca to request assistance from volunteers! (The City does not own or operate the online platform, but City staff worked with Snow Angels Canada to customize it for Barrie residents.)

If you don’t want this, then don’t whine when I blow the snow back onto the road
I totally disagree with this level of service. Very expensive to implement and will encourage more use of salt to avoid plowing. Honestly we live in a northern climate that gets snow, just shovel or blow it.
Id hate too see how much more we’re going to pay for taxes if this goes through. Not to mention the damage to the bottom of your driveway.
that is very hard to do in the city driveways are very close together so all you need to do is buy a snow blower.
