Hosting a Spring Yard Sale – Know Where to Post Your Signs to Keep the Community Safe
Spring cleaning is here, which means yard sales are happening throughout the community, and yard sale signs are popping up around Town. While yard sale signs serve an excellent purpose, it is important that they are created and placed properly to reduce safety hazards.
Yard sale signs are regulated by the Town’s Code Compliance Division, based on guidelines outlined in the Town’s Zoning Code, Article 7-5 Temporary Signs. Signs are regulated to ensure they are not obstructing line of sight for drivers, and not blocking sidewalks.
- Signs 6 feet in area or smaller (i.e. 2x3 sf)
- Signs on private property (with owner’s permission) that do not obstruct line of sight
- Signs on public right-of-way, two feet behind the sidewalk (15 feet from the pavement when a sidewalk is not present)
- Signs in the median
- Attaching items, including balloons
- Obstructing the sidewalk or roadways
- Attached to street signs, trees, poles, signals, utility boxes or any other structure within the right-of-way
- Any signs that obstruct the line of sight for drivers
