Regulations for Posting Political Signs
As elections draw near, please be aware it's illegal to post signs in the public right of way. To determine public right of way, a rule of thumb is to identify the area between the edge of the street and utility poles.
Prohibited signs and sign locations:
- Signs placed in street rights-of-way, in medians, or on any public property (park, library, post office, city hall, etc.)
- Signs attached to traffic control devices such as speed limit or stop signs, portable trailer, curb or A-frame type signs, and streamers
- Roof signs
- Moving signs
- Sign placed on private property without the owner's permission
This is not the sign ordinance in its entirety. If you have questions, contact the Code Enforcement Department at 678-691-1200.
