    How about a U shaped area with parking overnite in the middle area and a sidewalk with trees planted in about 10 foot intervals. Shrubs on the outside of the U. Cant put the snow anywhere on the shrubs, all snow must be pushed out of the U. Roofline surrounds the U except for the open part, drifts in there either on the left side or right depending on wind direction. Oh yes ya gotta come back for 7 am after the early morning opening to clean the overnite park area. Looks nice but machine and labour intensive.

    No doubt some places are plotted and designed by people that have never seen snow or ice! I used to plow a couple of condos that had hilly drives ending in garage doors. The doors never got old. Rail road ties for curbs 3 inches out of the ground. Circles on the
