Do I have to clear all of the sidewalk?

You must clear the sidewalk so that there is a walkable path wide enough to accommodate a stroller or a wheelchair. Ensure that you clear the snow towards your property (not onto the roadway side of the sidewalk) in order to allow a place for the snow plow to pile snow on the road side of the sidewalk, and in order to ensure that the plow does not push the snow back onto your sidewalk. If this does happen, you will be responsible for clearing your sidewalk again.
