If I want to support a cause, can I put a sign in my yard?
Yes you can put a sign in your yard, as long as it is a cause or a position, and not a commercial enterprise, you can place a sign that is no larger than 32 square feet in your yard. You must place the sign 15 feet from your property line, to assure safe sight distance for drivers. You must also maintain your sign – if it becomes tattered or worn, you will be required to remove it.
