Can I keep my portable basketball backstop on the sidewalk or in the street?

No. Privately owned sporting equipment such as basketball backboard structures, hockey nets, skateboard ramps, and similar items may not be permanently left in the public right-of-way.

The public right-of-way includes the street, sidewalk, and alleys. Residents are asked to put these items back on their private property once they are done using them so that the public and city maintenance equipment may access the area.
