Just curious about why all the concern over those signs and yet everywhere you go in Frisco right now there are politcal signs (larger than allowed) all over the streets and have been there for weeks and will be there long after the elections are over? What ordinance are they using that allows them to get by with that, yet Estate Liquidators and neighborhood garage sale signs are removed just a few minutes or hours after they are placed? Those signs are actually a help to people trying to save money and gas in this economy to buy things they actually need. The politcal signs have been exempt it seems like for the 5 years we have lived in Frisco. Thanks

Every campaign season we get numerous complaints regarding political signs.

State Statute 216.903 prohibits municipalities from:

1. Prohibiting political signs
2. Requiring permits or charge fees
3. Restrict the size of the sign (It does allow us to limit the sign to a maximum of 36 square feet. That allows for a pretty good sized sign.)

We can limit a political sign from being illuminated, having any moving parts, higher than 8 feet, or larger than 36 square feet.

We also review our sign code every two years. A panel of residents, business owners and other concerned parties sit on this committee. It has been a standard practice to this point that Frisco doesn't want signs everywhere. We have limits on restrictions for political signs, but want to very proactive on all other signs.
