Calgary Real Estate and RV'sEach spring and summer, the Calgary Parking Authority receives a number of complaints on how recreational vehicles (RVs) are being parked in residential neighbourhoods across the city of Calgary.

Some tips for parking your Calgary RV are: 

Park only on a city street or alley immediately adjoining your home and for a maximum of 36 hours. The 36-hour time limit is provided for owners to prepare vehicles for use or to clean and prepare them for storage after use.You can park your RV directly in front of your home or on an alley or street immediately adjoining your home for up to 36 hours. After 36 hours, the RV must be off-street for at least 48 consecutive hours before it can be parked in the same location again.

Be courteous to your neighbor and avoid parking in front of their home or restrict access to private property at any time.

Please do not park your trailer or camper on city streets or alleys unless they are attached to a towing vehicle. An alley must be 6.1 m wide at any point to allow for RV parking. If it is less than 6.1m wide, no parking is allowed.

Keep in mind other special rules for alley parking including not parking across from, in front of, or within 1.5 m of a driveway or garage and keep at least 3 m of the width of the roadway or alley clear. 

Keep your vehicle registration current, including license plate and insurance.

The RV bylaw (section 17 of the Calgary Traffic Bylaw 26M96) was amended on May 7, 2012 to allow CPA to better respond to requests from the public to enforce RVs in their neighborhoods and to provide clarity to RV owners on how to park their RVs. This change allows location and time duration infractions to be enforced separately. The full text of the bylaw is below.

Section 17, Bylaw 26M96, the Calgary Traffic Bylaw

(1) An owner or operator of a recreational vehicle for which the vehicle registration shows a City of Calgary address must not park the recreational vehicle on a street in the City, except in the area of the street immediately adjoining the owner or operator’s place of residence.

(2) An owner or operator of a recreational vehicle for which the vehicle registration shows a City of Calgary address must not park the recreational vehicle on the area of the street immediately adjoining the owner or operator’s place of residence for a period of more than 36 consecutive hours.

(3) An owner or operator of a recreational vehicle for which the vehicle registration shows a City of Calgary address must not park the recreational vehicle on the area of the street immediately adjoining the owner or operator’s place of residence if the recreational vehicle was previously parked on that that area of the street at any time during the preceding 48 hour period.

(4) Notwithstanding anything else in this section, an owner or operator of a recreational vehicle must not park the recreational vehicle on any street in the City in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to other persons using the street.

We use to go on road trips with a RV and it was a great time, and we would have the greatest stories to tell others when it came down to it. I never knew all of this was so much related to real estate as well.
