Garage Sales

You do not need a permit to have a garage sale or yard sale. However, there are two key rules those hosting garage sales must follow:

  • You may not host a garage sale for more than three consecutive days.
  • Garage sales are limited to four times per year at the same location.

Garage Sale Signs

Garage sale signs are considered a type of snipe sign, for which there are no permits or fees required.

While garage sale and other snipe signs are allowed on private property, they are not allowed in the following locations:

  • Public property, including the area around the City welcome signs at Webster/199th Street and Webster/223rd Street.
  • Public right-of-way, which is typically the area between the street and sidewalk. In areas without sidewalks, the right-of-way extends about 15 to 20 feet from the edge of the street.

Signs will be removed by City staff if they are found on:

  • Public right-of-way
  • Public property
  • Fences
  • Trees
  • Power poles
  • Temporary structures
