According to the city you're not supposed to plant fruiting trees in the parking strip, but I've seen some gorgeous apple, plum, and peach trees around Capitol Hill and Madison Valley where I live. My next door neighbor just planted an apple tree. So I wouldn't worry about it unless you think your neighbors are going to complain for some reason. Unless you leave fruit on the sidewalk, I don't see why anyone would have a problem with it.
