City issues reminder on political signs

August 18, 2008

The city of Lansing is reminding local businesses and residents who use yard signs to promote political candidates, parties or groups that they must follow specific standards to comply with city ordinance.

Signs in residential areas must be less than eight square feet in size. Signs in commercial districts must be less than 16 square feet.

No signs other than signs placed by government agencies can be put on public property. No sign can be placed on private property without the consent of the property owner. No signs can be attached to a tree, fence or utility pole on public property. No signs can be placed in city or state right-of-way.

Campaign signs are considered temporary and are allowed for four weeks prior to and one week after an election. Thus, signs must be removed between primary and general elections.
