How do sign regulations affect my property?

Yard Sale, Real Estate, For Sale, Political, Advertisement, or any other temporary sign is prohibited on the public right-of-way or on utility poles. As a rule of thumb, the area including the street and the sidewalk is considered public right-of-way. Generally, if you place a sign at least three feet behind the sidewalk, that is acceptable. If there is no sidewalk, please ensure that such signs are setback at least two feet behind your property line. The sign code regulates advertising based on the zoning district and street frontage of a property. Properties in more intensive zoning districts with larger street frontages are allowed more signage than smaller, less intensively zoned properties. Please email the Planning and Zoning Technician or call at 309.524.2033 to determine the allowable sign size, height and setback requirement for your property.
