Recreational Vehicles

Bylaws regarding parking vehicles within Residential Areas

HVCA works with The City of Calgary - Animal and Bylaw Services to address concerns within our community. We would like to thank residents of Hidden Valley/Hanson Ranch for being part of the solution!

When recreational vehicles (campers, boats and trailers) are stored properly, more personal vehicles can park on homeowners driveways. Parking as many vehicles as possible on each driveway not only frees up parking spaces on roads for visiting family and friends, but also helps with garbage/recycle pick up and snow removal.

Once the complaint is received, a “Warning Notice” is issued to the property owners outlining the offence and directing the property owner(s) to comply with the Land Use Bylaw.

The complainant is required to contact 311 after 14 days to advise if the offence is still occurring. Thereafter, an Officer will contact the complainant and an investigation will be opened.

The Land Use By-law addresses offences on private property.

If the recreational vehicle, trailer or large vehicle is on City of Calgary property, the complainant is required to contact “Calgary Parking Authority (403-537-7100)” to submit a complaint for follow-up.
