Longmont homeowner is allowed to keep Ron Paul sign upSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sat, 05/18/2013 - 13:53
Dear Johnnie: Is it legal for homeowners to still display political signs on their property?
Every day as I drive busy Third Avenue, I see a large banner saying "Ron Paul Revolution" posted on the back of a house (on Fourth Avenue). Obviously, the homeowner is not pleased with the current state of national politics, but the elections are over.
Shouldn't the sign come down? -- No Advertising, Please
Dear No Advertising: Have you checked to see if the Christmas lights are still up?
Yes. It is legal for homeowners to display political signs, even if the political season is behind us. In fact, the Longmont municipal code specifically allows a homeowner one ideological sign on his property. That sign can be 12 square feet.
