With the election season upon us, the City of Worthington is reminding residents of the regulations relating to the placement of political signs in the City of Worthington. Worthington Ordinances require that political signs be placed on private property outside of the public right-of-way. In typical neighborhoods, the right-of-way line is located one (1) foot behind the public sidewalk. In non-typical locations the right-of-way line can be identified on the Worthington GIS mapping system. http://www.worthington.org/gis
City zoning enforcement staff will be making regular surveys during the election season. If signs are found in the right-of-way that appear to be related to a residential property the sign will be relocated on to the property, out of the right-of-way with a message attached. If signs are found in the right-of-way that are not related to a residential property or are in front of public property, the signs will be removed. Removed signs will be stored at the Department of Planning and Building, 374 Highland Avenue and will be available for pickup during business hours, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
City Ordinance requires political signs be removed entirely within one week after the general or special election. For more information, please call (614) 431-2424.
