New Ulm City Ordinance 6.03, Subd. 4. Signs and other structures.
It is unlawful for any person to place or maintain a sign or other structure in the traveled or untraveled portion of any street, right-of-way, or other public property without first having obtained a written permit from the City Council. In a district zoned for commercial or industrial enterprises, special permission allowing an applicant to erect and maintain signs overhanging the street may be granted upon such terms and conditions as may be set forth in the zoning or construction provisions of the City Code.
What does this mean? No garage sale signs or any other signs can be placed on the sidewalks, boulevards, roads, including alleys. This includes placing any signs on any utility pole, utility box or any item that is on the boulevard. The center median of any street, road or highway is also included in this ordinance.
