There are various east/west streets in our neighborhood that run along the SIDE of houses (i.e., the front of the houses face the north/south streets). I have noticed several cars that have now taken up parking on these side streets routinely. One in particular parks right next to his house every evening all through the night which is near the entrace to our rear-entry alley. Another leaves his boat out on those streets sometimes for 2-3 days straight. Is this allowed or is there something that says you either have to park in front of your house or in the back with your rear driveway/garage?

Texas state law and Frisco city ordinances allow individuals to park their motor vehicles anywhere on a public roadway, so long as they’re not facing traffic (i.e. parked on the wrong side of the road), obstructing a fire hydrant, or closer than 20’ from an intersection. Unfortunately, parking in front of someone else’s residence is not a violation of the law.

In regard to your neighbor leaving his boat parked on the roadway, this is in violation of city ordinance. Boats and recreational vehicles are only allowed to be temporarily parked on public roadways for the purpose of “expeditiously loading and unloading.”

Please call the police department’s non-emergency number at 972.292.6010 to report any violations or if you have additional questions in regard to parking on public roadways.

What is the law in regard to parking in front of someone elses house? Frequently, we have guests that park in front of our neighbors house due to no available spots directly infront of our house. Is this allowable? If not, what are the laws/ordinances governing parking on a residential street?

There are no state laws or city ordinances prohibiting parking in front of another's residence.

Is the intersection of an alleyway into a main street considered an "Intersection?" I have a similar situation, where people park all around an alley entrance/exit and it is impossible to see around the cars for oncoming traffic and makes for a dangerous traffic situation when cars are parked across and near the alley's entrance.

Yes, it is an intersection. The parking laws can be found here.
