The Costick Activities Center, located at 28600 W. 11 Mile Road, is scheduled to be open through 10 p.m. Jan. 12; from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Jan. 13; and 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Jan. 14.

The city also shared other information that could be helpful to residents in the event of a winter storm.

“After a substantial snowstorm during which four or more inches fall within a 24-hour period, all local streets, including residential streets, will be promptly plowed within two days,” the release states. “Please note that heavier, wetter snowfalls may necessitate additional time for completion depending upon the storm's severity and duration.”

The city’s release also addressed street parking.

“Residents are strongly encouraged to move their vehicles into driveways and garages to facilitate efficient snow plowing and prompt emergency response, in addition to ensuring safe streets for all,” the release states. “The City acknowledges potential challenges for residents hosting guests and requests cooperation to the extent possible. Accumulation of snow at driveway entrances following plowing is inevitable and the City appreciates residents' understanding, patience, and cooperation in managing this unavoidable circumstance.”

GFL Environment is expected to maintain standard routes and schedules for garbage and recycling pickup, with delays possible due to weather conditions, according to the release.
