2013 - 2014 Snow Removal Goals

Please review and retain the map to locate the Academic Buildings priority entrances.
We ask the campus community to use these doorways to enter and exit, for maximum safety during and after a storm.

UMD Facilities Management is committed to providing safe access to and exit from the campus without causing unnecessary harm to the environment. To this end, we will strive to reduce the effects of snow and ice as quickly and effectively as our resources and the unpredictability of Minnesota winters will allow. We know that we cannot clear snow and ice from every entrance and walkway by 7:00 A.M. following a storm, so we have identified priority entrances to receive our earliest service.

Please review and retain the attached map to locate the priority entrances. We ask the campus community to use these doorways to enter and exit, for maximum safety during and after a storm.

GOAL ONE:

By 7:00 A.M. on the first business day following a snow/ice event; all parking lots will be accessible and open.

GOAL TWO:

By 7:00 A.M. on the first business day following a snow/ice event; a passable walkway will be provided between the nearest road and the priority campus entrances which serve the Academic buildings. Additional care will be given to clearing power assisted entrances.

(See circles and triangles on map. Triangles identify power assisted entrances.)

GOAL THREE:

Within two business days after a storm's termination, secondary entrances to campus buildings will be cleared.

GOAL FOUR:

Within three business days after a storm's termination, all exits will be cleared to the closest public way.

GOAL FIVE:

During non-business days priority will be given to maintaining safe access to campus buildings with scheduled events.

ICE STORMS:

In the event of an ice storm, Facilities Management will de-ice the campus in the most timely and efficient manner possible. Ice conditions may make it necessary to de-ice entrances in a circuit route rather than in priority order shown on map. Please always be alert for slippery walkways and wear appropriate footwear.

NOTE:
  • The severity, duration and timing of the storm will impact our ability to meet these goals.
  • Problem areas should be reported promptly to Facilities Management at (726) 8262 or Campus Police.
  • Parking lot concerns should be reported directly to Parking Services at (726) 7433.
  • If you have questions about these Goals, please call Shane Peterson at (726) 8262.
