However bylaw is not proactive in Calgary .... like GBaglo said ......
I never realized it needed to be back from the corner, good to know. I always assumed it was similar to fences, that can only be 6' back from even with the front elevation, and back.

And like you say, bylaw doesn't bother you at all, unless they get a complaint.

One may have a front fence if no higher than 4 feet and one minds the easements ...think it is the same city wide .....but I would check that because at our last house that 4 ft height also applied to the 6ft distance from front corner of house ..

We seem to have pretty tolerant nieghbours , when we talked to them about putting our trailer into storage ,they said - why don't you leave on the driveway ,not going to bother anyone . We are on a small culde sac ..... So there it is ...

I did get a ticket once for having my tent trailer on the street in front of my house, without tow vehicle attached.
I think somebody complained about the guy three houses down with the 40' boat on a trailer, on the street, without a TV. I figure I was collateral damage.

I guess I'm going to be the odd one out here and say that I wouldn't particularly like it if recreational vehicles (of any kind) were permanently parked in the street or in driveways (within view) in my neighborhood. It's just a slippery slope from there...

OK.

DO they still produce phonebooks? I haven't seen one in several years. (We don't have a land line anymore, so no listing for us.)

Yes, they do if you have a land line. The problem is that in order to save money, they've gone to something like a four-point font. It's ridiculous.

Kind of think one needs to be reasonable with what one parks out front in general , our trailer obstructs nothing is nice new and good looking , and our neighbours don't actually see it from their front window at all . Commercial vehicles , rust buckets and unkempt front gardens can be far more of an eyesore .... certainly size makes a difference .... just our opinion

My next door neighbour did a tour of mine the other day. Seeing the Escape in my driveway had him thinking about getting a trailer himself. He had a heart attack a month ago. Must have him thinking.

Fence bylaws for the City I do know well. (Hey, I gotta know something ) It is definitely 1.2m (4') from the foremost front façade of the house, and 2m (6'-6") for the remainder. Not too many people actually fence in the front yard anyway.
