On commercial properties and residential properties larger than one acre, campaign signs must be removed within ten days following the election. Campaign signs on these properties may be up to 32 square feet, but only one large sign per street exposure.
There is no limit for signs up to 16 square feet on com- mercial and large residential properties.
On residential properties of less than one acre, there is no restriction on the number of signs, but signs may not exceed 9 square feet in area.

Ordinance limiting parking and storage of recreational vehicles to go into effect Nov. 1
Last fall, the Village of Lombard ap- proved an ordinance that will prohibit the parking and storage of boats, trailers, and other recreational vehicles in front yards from Nov. 1 to March 31. The ordinance takes effect on Nov. 1, 2014.
The change limits the parking of
recreational vehicles in the front yard of single fam- ily residential properties. The front yard is defi ned as the fi rst 30 feet from the prop- erty line.
During the winter months, residents can
park their recreational vehicles in their garage, side or rear yards as long the vehicle is on a hard surface, in the front yard past the setback of 30 feet or at off-
tional vehicles in their site storage.
“This new ordinance will help keep front yards clear of such vehicles during the winter months when they are used less,” said William Heniff, Director of Community Development of the Village of Lombard. “By having the ordinance take effect in November 2014, we are able to alert residents to the change in Village Code. We hope the new Code provisions will enhance the beauty and safety of Lombard.”
