Indian Hills General Improvement District

   MISSION STATEMENT                 

The Mission of the District is to provide, within its Charter, those public facilities and services which maintain and improve the quality of life of its resident families, and to maintain and operate those facilities and services at the highest quality and in the most cost-effective manner possible, with the intent to continue to do so for a growing population of residents.




The District office has received phone calls asking who is responsible for removing snow on sidewalks that are adjacent to our residential properties.  The Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) below explains where the responsibility lies.

NRS278.02313 Maintenance, reconstruction and repair of sidewalks: Circumstances under which governing body may compel action by owner of property.

  1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a governing body shall not require an owner of property to maintain, reconstruct or repair a sidewalk in a public right-of-way that abuts his or her property.
  2. The provisions of subsection 1 do not prohibit a governing body from:

a)        Imposing an assessment or other charge authorized by law for any reconstruction or repair of a sidewalk that the governing body causes to be performed within a public right-of-way;

b)       Requiring any reconstruction or repair of a sidewalk as a condition of approval for a change in the use of the land;

c)        Requiring an owner of property to maintain a sidewalk in a public right-of-way that abuts his or her property if the sidewalk was constructed pursuant to standards that exceed the general standards of the governing body for sidewalks; or

d)       Requiring, by ordinance, owners of property to be responsible for:

  1. The repair and reconstruction of a sidewalk in the public right-of-way that abuts the property of the owner if the owner caused the need for such repair or reconstruction.
  2. The general maintenance of a sidewalk in the public right-of-way that abuts the property of the owner, including, without limitation, sweeping, removal of snow, ice and weeds, and maintenance of any grass, shrubs or trees that encroach on the sidewalk.

                (Added to NRS by 2003, 1738)

Snow is not to be deposited in the street per county code 12.08.040, if you are using a snow blower or plowing you must keep the snow on your property when using these removal efforts.  In an effort to assist our neighbors and to speed the process in shoveling the snow off of sidewalks, we are willing to allow snow being shoveled from sidewalks only, to be placed in the street.  Please try not to impede the flow of storm water in the gutter as it melts.  We would also like the sidewalks to be cleared within 24 hours of the storm passing through.
