Temporary Signs

Temporary signs are any sign that
is to be viewed for a short period of
time; is free-standing and/or affixed
to a wall, building or utility pole with
tape, rope, twine or nails; and is
made of paper, fabric, cardboard,
paint, marker or similar materials.


Overland Park strictly limits the use of temporary signs as they can easily undermine an otherwise attractive area and make it appear cluttered and unkempt.

Property owners are responsible for illegal temporary signs on their property and public street right-of-way adjacent to their property. Owners are allowed and encouraged to remove them from these areas.

The city has rules governing temporary signs, particularly signs for political campaigns, garage sales, real estate and promotional advertising signs and events.

Save yourself time: find out the guidelines before you place a sign in a yard.
