Residential Sign Guidelines Made Simple

signsEveryone has a favorite political candidate, a favorite school or church festival or event that they like to support throughout the year. With that in mind, the Village respects the individual freedom of expression that each resident enjoys being a citizen of our great nation. The Village of Golf Manor provides the ability for residents to do just that, along with ensuring the integrity and appearance of the community, which is a prime responsibility for everyone.

Village ordinances allow for residents to place “temporary” signs on their property from time to time to support political candidates, schools, events and charitable causes. What is not permitted in residential areas are “off-premise signs,” which are outdoor signs directing attention to a business, use, service, activity, commodity, or profession which is not conducted, sold, or offered upon the same lot where such sign is located.

All temporary ground mounted signs must be located no closer than ten (10) feet from a public right-of-way or a side lot line. in short, signs may not be placed in the grassy area between the street curb and the sidewalk or on public or Village property and must be located a minimum of ten (10) feet away from the curb. Finally, all temporary signs must be removed and replaced at any time when such sign has, or sign materials have, deteriorated to waste, debris or litter.

So go ahead and support that candidate or festival but refrain from allowing the furnace, roofing, or siding guy to stick a sign in your yard. Just remember to periodically make sure the signs you do put out are removed in a timely manner as the event or situation expires. Village personnel will review signs placed in the Village on a regular basis and will advise residents, if necessary, to remove signs that are not in compliance. Any questions should be directed to the Village Administrator.
