As the November 8 General Election nears, the Town of Zionsville is reminding residents to keep election signs out of the public right-of-way in accordance with the requirements of the State of Indiana and the Town’s Zoning Ordinance.
To ensure public safety, signs are not permitted to be placed in the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is an area that extends beyond the edge of the pavement of the roadway. Typically, the public right-of-way ends, and private property begins, behind overhead electrical poles, sidewalks, pathways, fire hydrants and similar infrastructure.
Regarding private property placement, signs are not permitted to be placed in the vision clearance area. This area is defined as a triangle located at the intersections of streets, alleys or driveways. Vision clearance areas should be clear so there is no interference with driver version.
The Community and Economic Development Department asks that residents take measures to ensure election signs are placed in compliance with requirements. Election signs placed in the public right-of-way will be removed.
