Spring flowers are not the only things popping up throughout the City as warmer weather returns. The City of Peoria would like to remind residents that placing all private signs – political, yard sale, temporary business, or otherwise – is prohibited in the public right-of-way.
Private signs illegally placed in the right-of-way should be removed as soon as possible.
Right-of-way areas include medians and the areas between the curb and sidewalk. Signs also cannot exceed 8 square feet on residential properties and 32 square feet on non-residential properties.
For more information or questions regarding signs in the right-of-way, contact Public Works at 309-494-8800.
