The City of Cranbrook wants to remind residents of the Streets and Traffic bylaw, which came into effect in June 2010, regulating on-street parking of recreational vehicles and unattached trailers.

The bylaw prohibits parking recreational vehicles and trailers on residential streets between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and prohibits parking unattached trailers on any street at any time, unless in an emergency situation.

The bylaw applies to travel trailers, tent trailers, utility trailers, campers, motor homes as well as boats and boats on trailers.

The intent of the regulation is to keep City streets safe and accessible for vehicular and pedestrian use. City staff fields numerous complaints on a regular basis relating to trailers blocking driveways and using limited on-street parking for long periods of time.

It is recommended that residents find alternate places to leave their RV’s, campers, boats and trailers when not in use, other than on the street.
