Views of Kirkland: Post no signs...

Market Street median, July 2012

With the primary campaign season just around the corner, we thought we would remind candidates that in Kirkland, all signs are prohibited in medians, except for signs saying, "Post No Signs In Medians."

For those who want to learn more, here is the relevant KMC:

It is unlawful for any person to either temporarily or permanently use or utilize any portion of a street right-of-way (whether or not improved and including sidewalk or walkway) or fairway, as defined in Section 14.16.020(b), for personal use, place of business or other private use, without first obtaining from the city a street use permit; provided, however, that this section shall not be construed to prohibit the incorporation of the unused right-of-way portion of an improved street into the landscaping design of the abutting private property. (Ord. 3840 § 7, 2002: Ord. 3761 § 1 (part), 2000: Ord. 2725 § 1, 1983)
— 19.04.050 Private use of street right-of-way or fairway without permit prohibited.
