Information Regarding Temporary Signs on Private Residential Property

Temporary signs are permitted only on private property and must not be displayed for more than 30 days. The maximum height is 5 ft and the maximum area is 2 sq ft total. Signs in the yard that meet these size limits do not need permits. The number of signs is not limited in a residential zone. However the total sign area must not exceed 10 square feet. (Example: 3'x 3' sign = 9 square feet). A temporary sign must not exceed 5 feet in height (measured from ground to top edge of the sign) for a freestanding or wall sign. A temporary sign must be set back at least 5 feet from the property line. No illumination is allowed.
