Following Rules about Signs – Including
Garage & Yard Sales
Keep Goodyear Beautiful
Goodyear City Codes exist to keep our neighborhoods in top
standards so we can keep property values high in Goodyear. Many of these codes
pertain to signs you often see along arterial streets or in neighborhoods –
most of which are illegal.
Temporary signs cannot be on City sidewalks or within the
public rights-of-way. Signs can only be up between sunrise and sunset and must be
removed daily prior to sunset. The following signs are prohibited:
Off-site signs (any advertising sign located off the property)
Vehicle signs or signs mounted or painted on trailers, boats, or
vehicles which are parked for display
Signs attached to utility poles, street lights, traffic signals,
trees, fences, fire hydrants, bridges, park benches or other public property
Portable or temporary sign which advertises a business,
commodity, service, entertainment, etc.
Bandit signs are portable signs and/or temporary signs which
advertise a business or commodity.
These illegal signs posted in the right-of-way, on utility
poles, light poles, medians, trees, lawns, parkways and on other public
property clutter our roadways and provide a blighting influence to our
neighborhoods. These illegal signs are normally found clustered at busy
intersections and along main thoroughfares.
To report illegal signs, call 623-882-7815.
Garage and Yard Sales
Goodyear only allows garage/yard sales four (4) times a year
per household. If you want to put up signs for your garage/yard sale, the
Garage/yard sale signs shall not exceed six square feet.
Such signs shall not be up longer than three days.
Signs may not be located upon City sidewalks or within the public
rights-of-way. If they are, they are subject to confiscation by the City. Signs
may only be on private property.
Signs may be placed, in the permitted areas, only between sunrise and
sunset. Signs shall be removed daily prior to sunset, or they shall be
subject to confiscation by the City.
The garage/yard sale sign should be just that, a sign. It
should be on a stick. Paper signs attached to telephone poles or utility poles,
street signs, etc. and cardboard boxes are considered trash, not signs, and
will be removed.
