Signage in the Right of Way

No signs are allowed to be placed in the City right of way without a permit. The week of Monday, July 20, 2020, signs that are in the right of way will be removed. City right-of-way is commonly the area between the sidewalk and the curb in front of your home/business.  If you do not have a sidewalk, the right of way line can generally be determined by finding the water curb stop (shut off) box.

Paper of Record

The Sun Times has suspended their physical print publication as of the July 15, 2020 issue. The City’s paper of record for public notices will now be the Ann Arbor News (Mlive), which publishes every Thursday and Sunday. Public notices are also included in this e-mail update and on the City website.
