There have been a few questions regarding political signage in Fort Thomas. Particularly, the size of some of the yard signs and there have been a few instances where a Fort Thomas resident has come home to a political yard sign being placed in their yard without permission.
Here are the zoning ordinances as it pertains to elections signs:
Section 15.2 of the Fort Thomas Zoning Ordinance states as follows:
A. ELECTION SIGNS
Election signs not exceeding twelve (12) square feet are
permitted to be placed on private property subject to the following
1. Where signs are otherwise permitted, an election sign may be
erected no sooner than sixty (60) days before the election and the sign
shall be removed within ten (10) days following the election to which it
applies; the owner of the property on which the sign is placed shall be
responsible for its removal.
2. Election signs may not be erected or placed on public
property, or on rocks, trees, public fences, sign posts, light poles, or
utility poles on public property. (end of ordinance)
If a sign is placed on private property without the property owner's
permission, the property owner should contact the candidate's office and
lodge a complaint.
If you have specific questions regarding signage, please contact our
zoning administrator, Frank Twehues, at 441-1055 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
