GUIDE FOR POSTING POLITICAL SIGNS
TEMPORARY SIGNS IN PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY
Section 7.08.01(2) provides no signs shall be erected in any Nebraska State Highway right-of-way without the approval of the Nebraska Department of Roads.
PLEASE NOTE: The "old Highway 77/92" corridor in Wahoo (Chestnut Street and 12th Street) currently remains under the jurisdiction of the Nebraska Department of Roads, and temporary signs MAY NOT be placed in the right-of-way on those streets.
Temporary signs (including political signs) displayed within the right-of-way of Wahoo city streets may not exceed 432 square inches (3 square feet), and shall not create an obstruction to vision and/or a collision hazard to the public. Temporary signs shall not be placed on trees or utility structures, including poles, cabinets, fire hydrants, and streetlights. Temporary signs shall not be placed in the right-of-way without permission of the abutting property owner. Section 7.08.02 of the Wahoo Zoning Regulations provides temporary signs may be for a continual period not to exceed 30 days.
POLITICAL SIGNS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY
No signs shall create an obstruction to vision and/or a collision hazard to the public. Under Section 7.08.05, a political campaign sign on private property exhibited in conjunction with a public election, is otherwise exempt from regulation.
OBSTRUCTIONS TO VISION AT STREET INTERSECTIONS PROHIBITED
Section 4.08 of the Wahoo Zoning Regulations states: "On a corner lot, there shall be no obstruction to vision between a height of two and one-half feet and a height of 10 feet above the grades of the bottom of the curb of the intersecting streets, within the area measured from the point of nearest intersecting curbs or curb lines a distance of 45 feet along the curb line of the streets. At the intersection of major or arterial streets, the distance of 45 feet shall be increased to 75 feet for each arterial leg of the intersection."
