Do I need a permit to have a garage sale?
Yes. A no fee garage sale permit is required to hold a garage or yard sale. There is a limit of 2 garage / yard sales per year per property. It is illegal to place a sign in medians and right-of-way or to tack signs on utility poles or trees to advertise the sale. One sign is permitted on the property where the sale is occurring and up to 3 off-site placed directional signs are permitted with the approval of those property owner(s). Contact the Building Division for the permit.
