On April 17, 2012, the City Council adopted an Ordinance to regulate the number of garage sales allowed on a residential property in the city. The new Ordinance allows for up to 4 garage sales per residential property in 1 calendar year. A garage sale that occurs on a Saturday and again on Sunday is considered 2 garage sales.
Sign Size & Location
Signs advertising garage sales cannot be placed on utility poles or on street signs. The Municipal Code allows for temporary garage sale signs that do not exceed 4-square-feet in size and 4 feet in height, to be placed on private property a minimum of 5 feet inside the property line. These temporary garage sale signs shall not be placed prior to 48 hours of the advertised sale and must be removed within 24 hours after the conclusion of the sale.
If you have any questions regarding garage sales, please contact the Code Enforcement Division at 310-544-5281.
