Signs in Right-of-Way
City Code Section 30-859 (5)
Any signs attached to trees, telephone poles, public benches, street lights, or placed on public property or right-of-way are prohibited. These signs create a hazard for maintenance workers as they complete their daily tasks.

Where can I place my sign?
Signs are often an effective and important marketing tool to draw attention to a garage sale, graduation party, special event, or social function. Just as important as the message on the sign is its placement.

Watch this video for more information.

What is a road right-of-way?

The road right-of-way is the "utility" portion of the public street and can be used by utility companies to put in their lines, etc, and this area is part of the public street. A rule of thumb is the right-of-way is 30 feet from the road centerline but this dimension can vary depending on the specific road and is not meant to be an exact number.

Where is my sign?
If you put a sign in an area that is prohibited by City Code, one of the departments at City Hall will remove them. If you need to get a sign back that has been removed, please contact the Streets Department at 763.635.1120.
