Very briefly, can someone tell me about the new sign ordinance? The only reason I bring it up is because as I drove to work this morning, I passed numerous Mother/Son dance signs. The dance is not until September 28th. Can organizations put out signs that early (over 7 weeks until the event)? If so, then it means that those same signs will be up for almost two months.

The City's sign ordinance allows a wide variety of signs. The signs that you have seen advertising the Mother/Son Dance are considered government signs. A government sign is a temporary stake sign used to convey information to the public regarding city, state, or federal government activities and events. The Mother/Son Dance is sponsored by the City's Parks Department. The Parks Department placed the signs out to provide notice for ticket sales which begin August 23. Based on the past success of the Mother/Son and Daddy/Daughter dances, tickets will likley be sold out soon after August 23. The signs will be removed soon after.

Frustrated in Frisco

What are the regulations and current considerations concerning "OPEN HOUSE" signs?

They are obviously still not allowed as my signs are still being confiscated (by the city). If they are still not allowed, is there a final resolve? If not, how does one go about bringing this issue up with & before council again?

An open house sign, a temporary stake sign that advertises the date, time, and location of an open house, may be erected no earlier than one hour before the time of the open house and must be removed no later than one hour after the time of the open house. The signs are to be placed on private property (generally a minimum of 10 feet behind the street pavement) with the consent of the property owner. The maximum size of a open house sign is six square feet.
