City cancellation notices due to COVID-19 and links to federal, state, and county agencies

The City of Albany is reminding those posting political campaign signs and temporary signs promoting special events, charity fund-raisers, and sales that the City's sign code prohibits signs posted in the public right-of-way.

City officials have received several complaints in the last few weeks about signs in the right-of-way. Most are posted in planter strips, the landscaped area between a street curb and the sidewalk. Signs are not allowed in planter strips, but must be placed on private property with the consent of the property's occupant. Signs are also prohibited on utility poles, trees, rocks and other natural features.

City staff notifies sign owners or those who post the signs about city regulations when they receive complaints, asking that the signs be moved. Signs are also prohibited in the right of way on state highways – Pacific Boulevard, Santiam Highway, Ninth Avenue SE, Lyon and Ellsworth streets – and may be removed by the Oregon Department of Transportation. City staff focuses on signs placed improperly on local streets.

To report signs that may be posted in the wrong place, call 541-917-7507.
