Stay on top of City readiness for winter weather, and get preparedness tips, learn about the snow removal process, find emergency snow routes and check out answers to frequently asked questions, at kcmo.gov/snow.

Remember: When the snow starts falling, residents should park vehicles off the street or park only on one side of the street, either the north or west sides, so that neighborhood plows can clear streets more quickly. The city’s snow procedures call for clearing a passable lane on neighborhood streets, while plowing main streets curb to curb.
