During the election season, Parker residents may want to show their support for local candidates and issues with election signage. The Town’s Municipal Code defines an election sign as one concerning candidacy for public office or urging action on any ballot issue in an election that will be posted for a temporary amount of time. Signs can be put up 60 days prior to the election and must be removed within five days following the election date.
In residential areas, the total number of signs per lot can’t exceed the total number of candidates and issues that appear on the election ballot. Temporary election signs are allowed without a permit; however, the property owner must give permission to display the signs. Signs in residential areas may not exceed six square feet of sign area, must be less than eight feet in height and must be 10 feet from the street. For more information on election signage, please call 303.841.2332.
