Placement of Election Signs Within City of Hobbs

For information about the policy regarding the placement of election signs for upcoming elections, please see Chapter 15.32 of the Municipal Code.

All signs are required to be placed on private property. It is recommended that permission be obtained from the private property owner prior to placement of election signs at private locations. A sign permit is not required by the City of Hobbs for temporary signs, which includes political / election signs.

Chapter 15.32 of the Municipal Code does not allow any type of election signs or banners to be placed on public property or within public street or alley rights-of way. The distances from the back of curb of a City street to the outside edge of the right-of-way line vary from nine and a half (9.5) to forty (40) feet. Please contact the Engineering Department to verify the right-of-way line location before you place any signs along City streets.

If signs are found to be in the City right-of-way, the candidate will be notified and will be allowed 24 hours to relocate the sign to a proper location. Signs remaining in the right-of-way after the 24 hour notice will be removed by City employees and delivered to the Street Department Yard for retrieval by the candidate within 30 days; if not retrieved within 30 days, the signs will be disposed of as abandoned property.
