City of Powder Springs Cleaning up Signs

No doubt that you have seen those roadside real estate signs all over the place, usually on weekends.  The City of Powder Springs is taking action to clean up the signs!


Here is the announcement as it appeared in the January 2008 Powder Springs Messenger:

"In our efforts to reduce sign litter, the city of Powder Springs is introducing the sign kiosk program. As and from Feb1,2008, weekend directional signs will no longer be permitted within the city limits.  DEvelopers and builders wishing to advertise will be encouraged to use the sign kiosk program.

A sign kiosk consists of a metal framed stand with several slots which will contain the business information provided by the advertiser.  One of the advantages of the sign kiosk program is numerous advertisers can display their information on one stand at one location.  The purpose of the sign kiosks is to provide clear directional signs, to help new residents locate subdivisions, parks, and city amenities.

Sign kiosks will be erected at prominent locations and at well travelled sites chosen by the city of Powder Springs.

Any questions regarding this program can be directed to Brenda Haythorne at the city of Powder Springs (770)943-8001x371 or Scott Tripp at National Sign Plazas (770) 998-9508"


I do not know how this will effect garage sale, yard sale, open house signs.  The city has had a permit policy for these type of signs.  People who wanted to place a sign can pay a small deposit and get a permit number to be placed on each sign.  When the sign is removed you get your deposit back.

I placed a call this morning to Scott Tripp for more advertising information and have not heard back yet, although I'm sure that I will.
