Sidewalks, roads and sign codes: What you need to know

Seattle King County REALTORS® tracks sign code changes in cities across King County so that you can quickly get the information you need to do business. The Association also advocates for REALTOR®-friendly codes to give you as many opportunities as possible to market homes.

The Medina City Council recently passed its revised sign code, which Seattle King County REALTORS® had a large role in shaping. The new regulations allow an additional open house A-board and have more allowances for on-premises signs facing the lake and golf course. Also, the new code increases sign dimensions to reflect the industry standard.

Meanwhile in Covington, REALTORS® have been working with the city for over a year on sign code changes currently under consideration by the Planning Commission. The commission is holding a public hearing in September on the proposed changes, and Seattle King County REALTORS® will be there to continue to advocate for rules that make sense for your business.
