Snow Angels Volunteer Snow Removal Program

Snow on sidewalks is a potential hazard to those with limited mobility. It also makes it difficult, if not impossible, for those who deliver services to the community to do their job - people who deliver mail, read water/gas meters, delivery services, EMS and fire.

That's why the City of Windsor offers the Snow Angels Program, a voluntary snow removal service for senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities. The program attempts to match volunteers from the community with residents in their neighbourhoods requiring assistance.

For volunteers, it's a great way to get some exercise and help your community! For high school students, it's an opportunity to help someone in need and round out your Community Volunteer Hours. For residents, it's a great way to access timely snow removal assistance.

If you want to volunteer or are looking for some assistance with snow removal at your home, don't wait. Call or email today to find out more about the Snow Angels Program.

Volunteer Prize Draw

  • As an added incentive, all registered volunteers will be entered into a draw to win a tablet .  In addition, two $50 Rec Express Cards will be awarded as well.

Second Round of Public Engagement for Walk Wheel Windsor

The City of Windsor is proud to announce the launch of the second round of public engagement for Walk Wheel Windsor, the City’s new Active Transportation Master Plan. The Plan will set the foundation for developing well-connected, attractive active transportation networks that are safe, convenient and user-friendly, no matter what mode of transportation people use. It will include a vision along with policies and actions to guide the development of safe and attractive active transportation options for people of all ages and abilities.

Over the next four weeks, the City will be gathering feedback from residents on the strategies and actions being considered in the draft plan, as well as concepts being considered for the bicycle, sidewalk and transit amenity networks. As part of this second round of public engagement, community roadshows will be held at the following locations:

Monday, November 19
4pm-8pm
Windsor International Aquatic Centre
401 Pitt Street West
Tuesday, November 20
5pm-8pm
Forest Glade Recreation Centre
3215 Forest Glade Drive
 
 
 

An online survey, available in interactive and accessible formats, is also available on the project website until December 14, 2018.

The benefits to cities that enable routine engagement in active transportation are vast, from improvements to public health, safety, and economic development, to reduction in carbon emissions. Children and youth who walk or ride their bike to schools have lower levels of ADHD and anxiety as well as higher levels of academic achievement. Older adults who engage in active transportation report lower levels of social isolation and are less susceptible to a variety of illnesses like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Regardless of age or ability, safe and accessible active transportation options benefit all Windsorites.

Officially launched in April of 2018, the Walk Wheel Windsor team has undertaken a robust public engagement process, connecting with more than 4,000 residents on what the future of walking, biking and transit should look like.
