Snow. Did you know the city removes the snow from approximately 80 miles of sidewalk around Newton, including both sides of Beacon St and Woodward St. and the east side of Beethoven Ave? Here is the map, Zervas is located in Zone 4.

How can you help?

  1. Shovel your sidewalk after every snow event and any nearby intersections. This allows safe passage for neighborhood children and encourages your neighbors to remove their snow as well. It is the LAW in Newton.
  2. If your neighbor is unwilling to remove the snow, consider removing it for them so your children and others can continue to walk to school through the winter.
  3. Report snow hazards on Newton 311.
