Signs provide an important medium to share a variety of messages, but they can also create traffic hazards and aesthetic concerns for our neighbors. All signs in the City of North St. Paul, including signs promoting garage sales, elections, and community events, must maintain a ten- foot setback from all lot lines, and must never be placed in the public right-of-way or on any street light posts or utility poles.
Under some conditions the City may require a greater or lesser setback due to public safety issues such as vehicle sight lines, distance from the intersection, or designation of an adjacent right-of-way. All temporary residential signs are limited to one sign for each street frontage of the home. Temporary signs must be removed within seven days after the promoted event.
Political signs. Non-commercial signs of any size may be posted in any number from 46 days before the state primary in a state general election year until ten days following the state general election, and in the case of a special election, from 30 days before the special election to seven days after a special election
