Spring has arrived and with it a colorful, healthy crop of signs for garage sales and other events. To help keep our City Beautiful we would like to remind you that special event signs should be removed not later than 24 hours from private property following the end of the special event. 

The current Zoning Code does permit garage sales in Residential Districts, however, the code does limit the frequency of the sales as follows:

    A garage sale should not exceed 3 days in length.

    No more than four garage sales are permitted per year at any one location. 

    Only one garage sale is allowed during a two-month period. 

Signs, including advertising signs for Garage Sales, are not allowed in the public right of way in Storm Lake.  The public right of way is generally described as the area between the sidewalk and street.

The municipal code notes that placing a such signs in the right of way constitutes a municipal infraction.  Addresses on such signs assists with issuing infractions.
