What Makes A Good Neighbor?

I sometimes receive little flyers under my door from Calgary Housing . Today it was a leaflet on what makes a good neighbor ; as if I didn't know , but it is a good reminder to those who play their music too loud and make a lot of noise at all hours of the night.

Good Neighbors:

Care for their property

This makes the highrise/curb appeal or surroundings and neighborhood a pleasant place to come home to! Sure is nice when it's reasonably neat and clean!

Are friendly

They smile and wave when they see you! They welcome new neighbors!

Respect the Privacy of Others and Don't Trespass

They extend friendship while recognizing some may accept it and some may not
They don't go over to neighbors with out being invited and they don't ask to borrow money or cigarettes

Keep the Peace

Noise can be very irritating - good neighbors watch how loud their music/televisions are, do not bang on floors or walls and keep noise to a minimum when guests are over.

Good neighbors properly dispose of their household garbage - put it down the chute and take their big items out to the city dump

Follow rules and other guidelines set up for all tenants in the building - like only using a maximum of 2 washers and dryers at a time, only a few hours a day and only a couple of days per week!

Volunteer when they can

This can range from periodically picking up litter to getting involved in local organizations that help improve the quality of life in the community!


A good neighbor - a found treasure
A good neighbor is a fellow who smiles at you over the back fence, but doesn't climb over it
