Will Open House Signs Become a Thing of the Past?

 The Tucson Association of Realtors announced today:

The City of Prescott has banned all signs, including Open House signs, within the city limits in the public right of ways. This decision was made as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Gilbert v. Reed. Cities all across the country are looking at their sign codes and we could be dramatically impacted.

There are many people in Prescott who are working to change the situation and the final story on this has been written; however, it is a reminder for us just how much we can be impacted by decisions made every day in local town halls.

This pertains to the temporary, 18” x 24” signs that realtors put on public rights of way during an open house. The smaller, 9” x 12” signs that some realtors still drive into the ground on stakes in public rights of way are already illegal.
