Potential for slippery conditions.........

Please Avoid Using Rock Salt on Cluster Sidewalks and Pathways
Rock salt is incredibly damaging to concrete surfaces. With the advent of winter weather, the Cluster Board would like to urge you to consider alternatives to rock salt as a means of controlling snow and ice near your house. Rock salt is not only damaging to concrete, it also can have significant adverse effects on pets and plants. Here are the recommended alternatives, in order of preference:
1. Sand
2. Pet-friendly products, such as Safe Paw (see below)
3. Magnesium chloride
4. Potassium chloride
5. Calcium chloride
