The City’s Department of Code Enforcement wants to remind citizens that placing campaign signs in the public right-of-way is illegal. A letter outlining sign regulations was sent to each political party headquarters last week.

The public right-of-way includes any city highway, street, alley, sidewalk or other public right-of-way intended for motor vehicle or pedestrian travel. This includes areas that border the right-of-way such as the grassy area between the sidewalk and the street. Citizens can also identify the right-of-way by the utility pole line if there is no sidewalk.

Signs are also prohibited from being posted on any utility pole or tree and cannot be placed in a manner to interfere with official signs, traffic devices, or view of any traffic intersection.

The Department of Code Enforcement will remove any illegal signage and dispose of it upon collection.

To report illegal signs, contact the Mayors Action Center at 327-4622 (4MAC). For more information about the Department of Code Enforcement, visit www.indy.gov/dce.
