Campaign Sign Reminders

Campaign Sign Reminders
Posted on 06/06/2022

As a friendly reminder to candidates, campaign signs cannot be placed on the parkway areas along the roads. The parkway is the area between the sidewalk and the road when sidewalks are present.

The parkway width is variable in areas where no sidewalks are present, but the Village considers a sign placed within two feet of the pavement edge in those areas to be violation of the Village Code.  It is also prohibited to place signs on private properties, including vacant properties, without permission of the property owner.

Signs in violation of the Code will be removed. The Village does not wish to infringe on any resident’s or campaign’s first amendment right to place political signs, but we are charged with enforcing violations of the Village’s code.
Candidates are reminded to remove their signs when the election is over.
