Islanders should remove campaign signs within two days after election

Political campaign signs must comply with the size limitations specified in the temporary signs section of the city code (MICC 19.06.020). The maximum size, according to the sign code, is six square feet.

Political campaign signs can be placed on private property with the permission of the property owner.

Signs can be placed on parking strips adjacent to a residence with the permission of the adjoining property owner.

They can also be placed on some public right-of-ways such as traffic islands and isolated parking strips or roadside areas, as long as there is no line of sight problem, traffic safety issue or maintenance issue. City staff asks that all political campaign signs be removed within 48 hours after an election.
