You’re trying to sell your house and in the meantime, your child is named a Star Student and your friend is running for office.

With recent updates to local laws, you’ll have to choose which two events you’d like to promote using a lawn sign.
Last week, the Oxford Board of Aldermen approved changes to the city’s Land Development Code that now limits non-permitted signs to two per yard in residential districts. The changes go into effect 30 days after approval.
Previously, there was no limitation on how many non-permitted signs that were allowed in a residential district.
The Planning Department proposed limiting it to three signs and allowing two additional signs during election times. However, the aldermen thought that was too many signs cluttering up Oxford’s lawns and changed the code to allow just two signs.
Another update to the code allows businesses to hang banners via a permit for 30 days a year in five-day increments.
“Banner signs were only allowed by a business three times a year for up to 15 days each time,” said Senior Planner Ben Requet. “We added some flexibility.”
