"Temporary campaign signs must be located outside the public street right-of-way and not be placed in a way as to be a sight obstruction."

"Rights-of-way are public property dedicated to and controlled by the City for the purpose of maintaining public infrastructure.

Private utility easements, such as for power lines, function similarly to public rights-of-way...

Rights-of way limits vary depending on the road but can generally be determined by looking from the edge of the road or curb:

• Back edge of the sidewalk
• Utility pole
• Fire hydrant

Any sign installed on public property or in public rights of way will be removed."


"Prohibited signs

• Portable signs legible from public rights of way

• Series of 2 or more signs with same message"
