Political Sign Regulations

In preparation for election day, the Village reminds residents to be mindful of our political sign ordinance. Because of the difficulty determining where temporary signs can be placed, signs placed in accordance with the following measurements will be considered in compliance:

  • Standard or Safety Sidewalks (sidewalks with parkway between walk and curb):
    • Signs mustbe at least 5 feet from the house side of the sidewalk.
  • Carriage Walks (sidewalks next to street): 
    • Signs must be placed at least 10 feet from the house side of the sidewalk. 
  • No Sidewalk: 
    • Signs must be placed at least 15 feet from the street edge or back of curb.
  • Sign Height:
    • No higher than 10 feet above curb level.
