Public Right of Ways
The election season is in full swing again and the Bryan Police Department would like to remind the citizens to be cautious when placing political signs. The City of Bryan does not allow such signs to be placed in the public right-of-way.
Public right-of-way shall mean the entire width of the area between private property lines dedicated for public use as a street, roadway, alley, bridge, thoroughfare, improved or unimproved pedestrian way or sidewalk.
Political signs can only be placed on private property with the permission of the land-owner. If the signs are placed in the public right-of-way, Public Works and Code Enforcement can remove the signs without notification.
The public right-of-way varies depending on the street type and other factors. If you have a question regarding the public right-of-way, please contact Code Enforcement at 979-209-5544.
