Campaign Signs

GUIDELINES

Campaign signs of any size and in any number are allowed on private property with permission of the property owner. Signs are not permitted on publicly owned land including but not limited to public schools, city parks etc. Signs are also not permitted to be posted on street signs or utility poles. Neither are they allowed to be in the public right-of-way. Please contact the County Surveyors department at (612) 348-3131 if you need assistance determining the location of county right-of-way. Unfortunately, the city does not have staffing available to provide this service.
