Political Sign Regulations

Election season is upon us, and we understand the desire for candidates to post signs. If you are not aware, all signs are regulated by the City sign ordinance, including political signs. More communication is desirable during the election cycle, so that all citizens may freely express their viewpoints during the election campaigns, and therefore this ordinance allows increased opportunities for signs during these periods, without limiting content. At all times, any sign permitted under this regulation can carry any legal message, political or non-political, commercial or non-commercial.

Please be mindful of the following regulations:

  • It is unlawful to place a sign in the right-of-way of any public street or on any public property or building, except signs by an authorized governmental unit. No sign shall be attached to or painted on a telephone pole or power pole, or any tree, rock or other natural object.
  • It is unlawful to place a sign on any private property unless the owner has given permission to place such sign on such property.
  • No sign shall be located closer than ten (10) feet from the back of the curb of a public roadway, nor be located closer than ten (10) feet from the public right-of-way.
  • No sign shall be maintained within 15 feet of an intersection or otherwise placed in a location that limits sight distance.
  • The total surface area of signs placed on a residential property (zoned R-15, R-25, RMD and RHD) shall not exceed 6 square feet.
  • The total area of signs on property zoned OI, NC, CBD, GC, I-1 and I-2 is not limited from between qualification for elections until the final determination of all contests and issues resolved by such elections.

Signs that do not meet the requirements of the Sign Ordinance will be removed, and can be picked up by the candidate or their representative at City Hall.

Thank you for your assistance in keeping signs compliant with City Code.  If you have any questions please contact Barbara Schlageter, Assistant City Clerk.
