Posting a Sign on a Utility Pole or Street Light Could Cost You $250

An improperly posted sign for a lost pet or garage sale could cost its owner $250.

In an effort aimed at "cutting the visual clutter" along our streets and public rights of way, the City of Tacoma is making an enforcement push aimed at signs taped, stapled, or otherwise attached to utility poles, street lights, traffic signs, or public structures. Those signs, according to a City press release, are in violation of Tacoma Municipal Code and Washington State Law.

The sign code helps promote a cleaner Tacoma, which in turn helps attract business development and makes the community more welcoming to visitors and residents.
