SNOW INFO YOU SHOULD KNOW:
HCCA INCLEMENT WEATHER CLOSING: Harper's Choice Community Association follows Howard County Government. Every attempt will be made to open as soon as it is safe to do so and staff can make their way in to work. We will put weather-related closings on our Facebook page.
MOVE CARS OFF PUBLIC STREETS: When a substantial snowfall event is planned, please move all cars into driveways so plows can clear the streets curb to curb.
DO NOT PARK ALONG CUL-DE-SAC ISLANDS: Plows can only clear your circle if there is enough room for them to turn and room to push the snow. Park in your driveway or garage when snow is predicted.
UNCOVER STORM DRAIN INLETS: If melting snow has no place to drain, it can cause street icing and flooding.
CLEAR THE SIDEWALKS: The owner of property abutting a sidewalk is required to remove snow from the sidewalk within 48 hours after the snow has fallen (Howard County Code). This includes public sidewalks that are adjacent to your property or behind your property.
