Signs, Signs Everywhere a Sign. But Not There

right of way

Currently the City sign code does not require to pull permits, however it does prevent you from placing in a city right-of-way. Be careful placing signs in the grassy strip between the street and sidewalk. But usually they are a part of the right-of-way, so check before placing.

Example areas in right-of-way:

  • 7th Street South of Harrison
  • Behind the Goodwill on 5th Street
