Is there a way to adjust how high/far the snow shoots out so that it is less than 35'?

It actually really depends on the weight and depth of the snow. Deeper snow seems to throw farther. If I am in a narrow area, or near a structure, I just turn the chute so it is throwing at a more forward angle than just full over to the side. Does that make sense?

We live in the city and want to blow our block's sidewalk and path to the house[s].  Since the yards are small, I am concerned about where the snow piles end up.  Being able to direct the flow could work. 

Thanks.

The chute has pitch control. And also the auger is variable speed. You can throw snow 1 foot if you wanted to.

As Jacob pointed out, one of the coolest features of the Ego snowblower is the variable speed auger. This combined with the pitch adjustment on the chute gives you FULL control over how far you want to throw the snow. Running the auger at less than full speed should also increase the run time, a nice side effect. :-)
