Correct Sign Placement

Tulsa has established set of guidelines for sign placement put forward in Title 51 of the Building Codes. These guidelines include all political, real estate, for sale, garage sale, estate sale and open house signs.

Signs are not allowed:

  • In the right-of-way of a street under any circumstance
  • Closer to the road then any power line or fence
  • If there is no power line or fence line the sign must be at least 12 feet from the curb

Signs that are in the illegal area will be removed by city inspectors and offenders may be cited for repeat offenses.
