The City Responds to Recent Questions Regarding Rules for Lawn Signs
Recently the City has received a number of questions about the size and placement of lawn signs.
The City respects the public’s First Amendment right to the freedom of expression. Mindful of this protection, the City of Palos Verdes Estates allows lawn signs, but requires the lawn signs on private property to be set back at a minimum of 10-feet from the curb or edge of the roadway. No signs may be posted on public property, such as parks, parklands, trees, sidewalks, parkways, street signs, and rights-of-way. The purpose of this regulation is to control litter produced by unauthorized use and distribution of signs and preserve the natural scenic character and aesthetic appearance of the City of Palos Verdes Estates. We appreciate the public’s support and adherence to these regulations.
In reference to the size and number of signs on private property, the City refers to the regulations of the Palos Verdes Homes Association (PVHA). The PVHA advises that:
- One sign may be displayed on an improved or unimproved (vacant) residential property.
- The size of the sign displayed shall not be larger than 18” x 30”. The sign frame must be a maximum of 2” x 2”.
- All signs on the exterior of commercial buildings or located anywhere on the property must be approved by the Palos Verdes Homes Association.
Please consult with the PVHA for more information; the PVHA can be called at (310) 373-6721.
The City encourages voluntary compliance and neighborhood cooperation and communication to maintain compliance with these sign regulations. If signage concerns cannot be addressed among neighbors, they can be reported to the City at (310) 378-0383; however, recognizing the City’s limited resources, the City appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation with enforcement efforts.
