Residents do not need a permit to hold a garage sale.
Residents also do not need a permit to post signage promoting a garage sale. One sign may be placed on private property, making sure the sign is about 10 feet from the curb, avoiding the public right-of-way. Additional signs may be placed on the property of neighbors (with their permission), again avoiding the right-of-way.
Signs placed on public street lights, utility poles, trees, hydrants, or street signs are prohibited and may be removed by City officials. Note that residents may not hold more than two garage sale events per calendar year, and the event may not last longer than three consecutive days.
