Snow Plowing Guidelines and Priorities:
Snow removal and sanding will begin at approximately 2 inches of snow and/or when roads are icy. The priority for snow removal is as follows:
A. Bell Mountain Parkway
B. The loop consisting of Bell Mountain Drive & Glade Gulch Road
C. The thru roads - Old Gate, Serenade, High Spring, Mariposa, Young Circle, Medallion & Upper Glade Gulch
D. At approximately 4 inches, the cul-de-sacs are plowed to the end and then back to the start with one pass going by the mail boxes for postal access. An exception is made for those cul-de-sacs that have their mail boxes in a "bump-out". Here, an additional pass will be made to provide access to those mail boxes. When there is a significant snowfall, the cul-de-sacs may see additional plowing similar to the main roads.
All drivers are urged to use caution and common sense when the roads are snow covered or icy. While the speed limit of 30 MPH on the ranch is adequate for dry roads, a safe speed will likely be much slower on the curves and hills when the roads are snow covered or icy.
