Election season is here!
Signs may now be placed in specific areas throughout the City and must be removed no later than November 15.
Here’s more information about the upcoming election that we thought you may like to know…
The City’s Sign Code outlines provisions regarding “noncommercial signs” that may be posted with campaign or political messages. Signs must comply with City code regulations and have separate restrictions depending on placement in Residential or Non-Residential Zones. Additional regulations apply during the “election period,” which is defined as “the period commencing 90 days before any national, state, or local election in which city electors may vote up through the date of the election.”
Camarillo Municipal Code §17.04.020 (Definitions) defines a “noncommercial sign” as “a sign that does not name, advertise or call attention of a commercial or industrial business, commodity, product, good, service or other commercial or industrial activity for a commercial or industrial purpose.” This definition includes signs with political or campaign messages.
Please refer to the Camarillo Municipal Code (CMC) Chapter 17.04 to view the complete code.
For a summary, please see this handout on the City’s website:
