Because of last night's accumulation and anticipated additional snow, we ask residents to assess conditions and necessity before traveling. Snow crews plowed main roads through the night and hope to start on residential streets as the snow starts to subside.
Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind:>> Please consider parking somewhere other than the street.>> If you live by a hydrant, please make sure it is visible.>> Do not shovel snow into the street, shovel it into the grass.>> Clear sidewalks within 24 hours of accumulation.
Thanks to the town's Public Works and Parks crews who have worked tirelessly throughout this winter storm.
Post Update (11/25, 8:45 p.m.): All town facilities, including Town Hall, the Windsor Police administrative office and the Community Recreation Center, will operate on a delayed schedule on Tuesday, Nov. 26. All facilities will open at 10 a.m.

Original Post (11/25, 3:33 p.m.): Windsor snow crews (staff from Public Works and Parks) have been on alert since early this morning. With this storm, our Snow Shift crews intend to focus on main arterial and collector streets, major and minor intersections, traffic lights, stop signs, sharp curves, hills, roundabouts and emergency facilities during the heaviest part of the storm.
Once the snowstorm subsides--and depending on how much snow has fallen--the town will be able to assess residential side streets.
Please be aware that staff make it a priority to remove snow and ice from main roadways and major intersections as quickly and efficiently as possible while keeping essential roads open for the upcoming Holiday. The goal of snow and ice removal operations is to return road surfaces to safe winter driving conditions as soon as possible with the resources we have available.
Remember... safety first, safety foremost. Before you go out during this winter storm, please assess weather and travel conditions. Each snowstorm has variable conditions and it's hard to accurately predict the storm's impact. According to the US National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado, Windsor should expect snow showers tonight, which may be heavy at times. There may also be patchy, blowing snow after 10 p.m. and snow accumulation of 9-13 inches possible. We may see up to 3 more inches tomorrow.
