Keep Cuyahoga Falls Looking Spectacular!

Spring has arrived and with it comes spring-cleaning, as well as garage and yard sales. Cuyahoga Falls city officials would like to remind residents to post garage and yard sale signs in their own yard or on private property. City law prohibits posting notices and advertisements on public property and rights of way, such as: streets, tree lawns, sidewalks, boulevard islands, park entrances and utility poles; the nails, screws and staples pose a particular threat to employees who must use utility poles for repairs and signs often pose hazards at street intersections by blocking required, safe vision.

City officials stated that signs posted in public places also clutter the city's appearance, destroying the community's image. The city has stepped up enforcement procedures to remove unlawfully posted signs. Each weekend, a police officer is charged with removal of signs posted on public property.

Residents should place their signs on private property and announce garage and yard sales in local newspapers. This will allow residents to receive exposure and keep our city clutter free. Realtors should also take heed and place 'For Sale' signs in private property only, as signs placed on public property will also be removed during the weekends as well.

"Let's keep our home town looking first rate for ourselves and for those wishing to purchase property here," stated Susan Truby, Director of Development. Please call the Development Department at 330.971.8135 with any questions.
