Can you provide me with guidance as to signs that homeowners can/cannot put in their yards? If the city allows them and the HOA doesn't, which guidelines do you follow?

Please call code enforcement at (972) 292-5302 if you have more specific questions. I will try to give you a quick overview.

I have attached some common sign codes that pertain to residential areas. HOA's can have their own set of sign rules. Their rules can be more restrictive than those of the city, but cannot be more lenient.

Garage sale sign Only one on the property and erected earlier than 9:00 A.M. on the Saturday before the garage sale and must be removed by 6:00 p.m. on the Sunday following the sale.

Residential real estate sign One on the property not to exceed 6 sq ft.

Political sign Only on the property with the permission of the property owner and should not exceed 36 sq ft. be voted upon at an election called by a public body, or contains primarily a political message.

Open house residential sign Only on per property and erected no earlier than two hours before the open house starts and removed no later than one hour after it is over. It shall not exceed six sg ft. No balloons, streamers, flags or pennants can be attached and the sign cannot be placed on a vehicle, fence, pole, tree or railing.

Alarm sign Allowed.

School identity sign Those that show your child is in band or on a sports team is allowed.

Remember that the HOA may have different restrictions.

Clarification for the garage sale signs. They must be on private property with the permission of the property owner. They don't just have to be on your property.

Aren't there rules as to how close the same political signs can be placed too? (to avoid an area from being "wallpapered" by one candidate?

The rules for political signs is:

1. They have to be on private property.
2. They cannot be in the right of way even on private property.
3. There is a limit to the size.

There is currently no limit on the numbers. We have added that to our list that we will address when we update the sign ordinance. We look at the ordinance every two years to make sure it covers what it needs to and takes in to account changing times and technology.

Election season is almost done. These signs will soon be gone. We will remember to look at the issue during the next review.

Thanks

Update

A lot of HOA's have restrictions to the number of signs allowed. My description above was for areas outside of HOA's.
