Why is there is a street/traffic sign in my yard?

Street and traffic signs are needed to inform everyone of their location, potential hazards, speed limits, and regulatory intersections such as a stop. Without these signs, our valued residents, their guests, and other visitors to the Village would be unable to navigate Village streets safely and informed. We make every effort when replacing and erecting these signs to place them on existing sign poles, light poles, or on the property lines to have as little inconvenience as possible. On some occasions, though, we are unable to do this. Because of site restrictions, utility proximity, height or distance regulations we may be required to place them on a separate pole in the Right-of-Way in the front of the house.
