Noblesville Residents Reminded To Keep Signs Out of Rights-of-Way

As primary elections approach, the City of Noblesville reminds residents that temporary and opinion (campaign) signs are prohibited from city right-of-way through the Noblesville Unified Development Ordinance. To enforce the code, Noblesville crews will out removing campaign and other illegal signs from city right-of-ways on Saturday, April 7 and 21.

Areas that should remain sign-free include right-of-ways, medians and vision corner clearance (signs close to the roadway that create a sight obstruction).

INDOT also is conducting sign sweeps in state right-of-ways. INDOT personnel are required by Indiana Code 9-21-4-6 to remove all unauthorized signs within the state right-of-way. Noblesville has permission to assist the state in removing unauthorized signs on state routes, which include Indiana 19, 32, 37 and 38.

Removed signs will be taken to Noblesville City Hall, 16 S. 10th Street. Signs may be claimed by the owner during normal business hours – 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. At this time, there is no cost to reclaim signs. Signs that are not claimed by May 31 will be recycled.

For questions about sign placement or to report signs placed in the right-of-way, contact the Noblesville Planning Department at 776-6325 or plandept@noblesville.in.us.
