I was driving south on Preston, towards Main, and a wind swept sign hit my car. I was traveling about 40mph and the sign was flying through the air going about 15mph. I have a scratch on my car and would like to know why the city allows political signs to be placed along the roads. The sign that struck my car was at least 3'x 4' in size.

On a side note, I would like to know the city's stance on those "Lose weight in 30 days" and "I buy houses" signs. I call it street spam...and it's disgusting. Legally, can I remove them?

The City of Frisco is engaged in a process to modify its current sign regulations. While the City is unable to regulate the content of signs(the message on a sign), the City is able to establish time, place, and manner conditions in which signs are to be erected. During several public hearings, there has been much discussion over the issue of allowing stake signs within the right-of-way. The City Council will consider an ordinance to establish new sign regulations at their April 2 or April 16 meeting. You may view City Council agendas on this same web site. Please contact me if you have any questions.

The City of Frisco's sign regulations prohibit the placement of "Lose weight in 30 days", "I buy houses", and similar signs in the right-of-way. Signs posted on utility poles are also prohibited. As for removing the signs, please leave that task to our Code Enforcement Officers. You may report any violations by calling (972) 335-5580. Thank you.

I would like to know why hundreds of political advertisement signs were placed alongside Wade Boulevard for months. There were numerous signs advertising the same candidate every four to five feet. This looked horrible. What are the regulations for these types of signs? Why were hundreds posted and not just one or two?

A political sign is a temporary stake sign relating to the election of a person to a public office, relating to a political party, or relating to a matter to be voted upon at an election called by a public body. Political signs may not be erected earlier than 30 days prior to the election that the sign pertains and must be removed within five days after the election. Signs must be placed on private property and shall not exceed six square feet in size. There are no limitations on the maximum number of political signs per property nor is there a distance requirement between signs.
