Section 6.8 of the River Run By-laws prohibits the display of any type of sign in a homeowner’s yard (with the exception of for sale signs). However, Washington State RCW 64.38.034 has overruled any governing document restriction with regards to political signs. Governing documents may include restrictions regarding the number and size of political signs and how long they are displayed.
The Board agrees with Washington State Law. We also feel that this has not been an issue; it just needs some clarification to homeowners:
We request that homeowners follow reasonable standards in placement, size, quantity and duration when displaying political signs. The accepted practice is to display signs no more than 30 days prior to an election and taking them down promptly after election day.
