About Snow Plowing

Introduction

Are you a business owner under the blanket of snow that winter often whips up? The frosty months may bring a picturesque view, but they also carry the annoying task of frequent snow removal. Snow plowing is an indispensable activity, especially for commercial properties. It ensures that business operations continue smoothly despite seasonal challenges. This comprehensive guide will provide insights into the process, benefits, and how to find reliable sources for snow plowing near you.

Understanding Snow Plowing

Snow plowing is a process that employs high-tech equipment to remove excessive snow from commercial properties’ open spaces, driveways, pavements, and more. The primary goal of this service is to ensure safety and accessibility during the winter season. Carefully conducted snow plowing services can help you maintain a clean and well-kept commercial property, ensuring your customers and employees can access the premises safely.

Hiring professional snow plowing companies near you is imperative to prevent potential property damage and ensure that the job is done correctly. Reliable commercial snow plowing contractors have trained staff and heavy-duty equipment to remove large amounts of snow quickly and efficiently.

Benefits of Professional Snow Plowing Services

Wondering why you should invest in a professional snow plow service near you? There are plenty of advantages worth noting. To start with, professional companies upholding industry standards guarantee that snow is removed while minimally impacting your landscape. This comes in handy, particularly when you have carefully landscaped vegetation on your commercial property that’s prone to damage under snow weight or when unprofessional techniques are used for snow removal. Better still, ongoing plowing services save you the time and energy otherwise consumed in manual removal. In addition to making your property safe and avoid any accidents caused by slippery ice patches.

Finding Reliable Snow Plowing Companies Near You

You can easily summon professional help once heavy flurries start blocking your driveway or obstructing access to your commercial building. All it takes is a simple search like “snow plowing service near me” or “snow plowers near me”. However, while sourcing help online, scrutinize the service provider’s reputation, experience, equipment, and their responsiveness to emergency calls. Local and customer reviews can be instrumental in this. Equally important is to verify that they are insured in case of any accidents or potential property damage.

Tips for Commercial Snow Plowing

To make the most of snow plowing services, you can follow a few practical tips. Before winter officially arrives, work out a snow removal plan with your chosen service provider. Discuss the schedule, key areas to focus on, points of access that need to be kept clear, and a backup plan in case of heavy snowfall. During the service, ensure walkways are salted after plowing to avoid ice formation and create safe passageways. Additionally, instruct the snow plowers near you to pile the snow in a convenient location where it won’t obstruct pathways, entrances or parking spaces.

Conclusion

In conclusion, snow plowing is a vital service for any commercial property looking to maintain a safe and accessible facility during the harsh winter months. Investing in professional plowing services can yield significant benefits, including timely snow removal, damage prevention, safety, and appearance. And the good news is finding a reliable snow plowing company near you is as simple as a few clicks or a quick search query like “plowing snow near me”. With the right service provider, your commercial properties will remain clear, safe, and accessible, regardless of how much snow the winter season dumps at your doorstep.

About Saint Clair Shores, Michigan

History

Located along the shores of Lake St. Clair and inhabited by French settlers as early as 1710, during which time the area was referred to as L’anse Creuse, the future St. Clair Shores would remain mainly a rural farming area populated by largely French and German immigrant families into the early 20th century. These local family surnames have survived into the 21st century and can be found in the surnames of current residents and among numerous residential street names.

From 1835 until 1843, the area was part of Orange Township, among the first townships platted in Michigan and part of Macomb County. In 1843, Orange Township was renamed Erin Township, in homage to the numerous Irish immigrants who had moved into the area and had begun to exert their political influence. From 1843 until 1911, what is now St. Clair Shores was a part of Erin Township, parts of which make up today’s municipalities of Eastpointe, Roseville, and St. Clair Shores.

In 1911, the eastern portion of Erin Township was partitioned off to become Lake Township. St. Clair Shores was incorporated as a village in 1925 and remained a part of Lake Township until, after numerous failed attempts, its residents voted to incorporate as the city of St. Clair Shores in January 1951. Lake Township continued adjacent to the city until 2009, when residents of the village of Grosse Pointe Shores (that portion of Grosse Pointe Shores in Macomb County located within Lake Township) voted to incorporate as a city.

Beginning around the time of the First World War, St. Clair Shores became a favored playground for gamblers, rum runners, and lakefront tourists alike, culminating during Prohibition, but continuing through the Second World War era. During these years, the village was the home to many popular roadhouses, blind pigs, and gambling establishments, such as the Blossom Heath Inn. St. Clair Shores’ lakefront location and proximity to Canada coupled with a receptive and often participative community made it an advantageous haven for rum runners, and the area was actively involved in the rum-running era of Prohibition. Local residents, politicians, and law enforcement of the era were known to sometimes conflict with both state and federal officials over their attempts to regulate these illegal, but economically vital, activities within the community.

The Eagle Pointe subdivision, one of many platted within the village of St. Clair Shores during the early 20th century, was platted along a part of the lake shore in 1916. During the next few decades, dozens of subdivisions were platted through the local farmland, but most were not developed in earnest until after the Second World War, when St. Clair Shores became the fastest-growing suburb of Detroit during the 1950s.

From 1927 until 1959, the community was the location of the Jefferson Beach Amusement Park, a major lakefront attraction for the Detroit area and beyond. Opened in 1927, it boasted the longest roller coaster in the United States and numerous other midway attractions, a large, ornate lakefront dance pavilion, and a large, sandy beach popular with swimmers and sun bathers. In 1955, a fire destroyed some of the attractions and buildings within the once-popular park, and this, coupled with changing public tastes, accelerated its demise. While the owners of Jefferson Beach Amusement Park considered rebuilding, by this time the park was not popular with local government officials, and the city council had begun exploring forcing the closure of the facility or purchasing it for public use. Instead, the park owners, who had previously started building an onsite marina facility, began to expand that part of the facility. By 1959, the remaining park amusements and buildings were demolished to make room for the greatly enlarged Jefferson Beach Marina. All that remained of the once grand amusement park was its large, ornate lakefront dance coliseum, which for years thereafter was relegated to use as a marina storage facility and marine supply store until it, too, was destroyed by fire.
