What are the guidelines for posting yard sale signs?
  • The signs may be placed adjacent to the right-of-way with the property owner’s permission. (This means off to the side of the public right-of-way, not on the City mowing strip nor on the City sidewalk.)
  • Yard sale signs shall not be posted sooner than 5 p.m. on the day prior to the sale and shall be removed immediately following the end of the sale.
  • Yard sale signs must include the address where the yard sale is located and a date or dates of the sale.
  • Signs for yard sales shall not be allowed for more than three successive calendar days in a 30-day period and shall be limited to advertising not more than three yard sales events in the same calendar year at the same location.
  • A fine of $100 per yard sale sign which exceeds these provisions may be levied against the property owner where the sales are held.
  • No private signs, including yard sale signs, are allowed on any street sign, utility pole, roundabout, street median, planter strip or sidewalk.
