I'm not in a HOA community. My neighbors can do anything they wish.
Nobody around here PAYS for storage.

Fred,
What happens if one of those parked campers block your access? Do you know the owners? Also looks like a hard place to stop 2-4 lanes of traffic to get in or out? Is it heavily traveled?

1. This is an older "Inner City" neighborhood. The streets were laid out in a grid in 1907 and my house was built in 1918. Note that there is no curb cut in front of my gate; it's not an official driveway. Between the Permit Taxes/Fees and the Construction Costs, it would cost me $10,000 to cut the curb and create an official driveway. Right now I have a 10' x 2' (200 pound) piece of Diamond-plate Steel that I haul out to bridge the 9" high curb & gutter.

If ANY vehicle blocks my access, I'm totally out of luck. The city sweeps that street every Thursday. No parking is allowed from 8:00 to 11:00AM. At 10:55 all of the neighbors who are home in the middle of the day swoop in to park there.

2. Yes, I do. I made a special effort to meet them. The young man who owns the front Motorhome lives at the other end of my block, is Deaf and only speaks only Spanish, but can read English. The young man who owns the back motorhome lives in the next block, speaks Spanish as a 1st language but speaks broken English somewhat. I try to be on friendly terms.

3. Yes, it is. It is parallel to the main thoroughfare which is one block north and very congested. I generally stop traffic to get in and out of my yard. Some people waiting for me are more patient than others.

That's life in the big city. I suspect it's one reason why people live in HOA communities.

Bummer,
Maybe a "Do not Block" sign posted on your fence may make anyone parking there aware that you may need to leave and that you need access. I too have access issues, more of a neighbor letting me pull into their yard so as I can easily back into mine. If that neighbor sells or decided to fence, I'd have a tougher time. Life goes on in the big city!
