Signs in the Public Right-of-Way
Residents are reminded that the Town Code prohibits the placement of certain signs, including political signs, in the public right-of-way. Signs for temporary events such as yard sales and open houses are allowed. The public right-of-way is the area of land generally located between the street and a sidewalk or extending approximately six feet behind the curb if there is no sidewalk.
If you have placed a sign in the right-of-way, as described above, please move it onto your private property. Please contact the Town Office at 301-654-7144 if you have any questions
