SIGNS and SIGN ORDINANCES
If there are mistakes here  please let us know so we can correct anything that needs correcting.

WHERE AND HOW MAY SIGNS BE PLACED IN THE TOWNSHIP ?  

Chapter 108. NUISANCES....   http://www.ecode360.com/9007279?highlight=sign,yard#9007279

G. To nail, tack, hang or otherwise append any sign, notice or advertisement of any kind whatsoever
                    on any tree, post or pole of any description within the township, except on private property
                    and then only by permission of the owner.

        

Chapter 115 Parks Playgrounds and School District  Grounds    http://www.ecode360.com/9007338 
Chapter 115. A 20 "No placard, advertisement, public notice or personal

                          card except park and playground notices, rules and regulations

                          shall be distributed, posted or affixed in any manner

                          in a park or playground." So it's prohibited by default.

 Chapter 115. B  16 says: No placards, advertisements, public notices or

                          personal cards shall be distributed, posted or  affixed

                          to buildings or appurtenances on school district grounds.
