In an effort to treat all political candidates consistently and fairly, the City of Apple Valley administers a process to enforce State regulations related to the placement of signs in city right-of-way and city property. The rules apply to political campaign signs for all candidates, regardless of whether they are seeking school, city, county, state or federal offices.

Consistent with the laws of the State of Minnesota, campaign, private and commercial signs are not allowed in the following locations:

Public right-of-way for State Highways, including Trunk Highway 77

County property and public right-of-way for County Roads

Public right-of-way for City Municipal State Aid Streets

Property owned by the City of Apple Valley

If the city finds a violation on city property or the right-of-way of city Municipal State Aid Streets, the signs will be moved to the Apple Valley Central Maintenance Facility located at 6442 140th Street. Signs may be reclaimed Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. Unclaimed signs will be disposed of 60 days after removal.

Questions concerning campaign sign rules should be directed to the City Code Enforcement Division at (952) 953-2570.
