Election and Other Temporary Signs in Anthem

November 9, 2022, Anthem, AZ - With Election Day behind us, Anthem Community Council thanks all candidates in advance for the removal of their signs by November 23 as regulated by Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS§16-1019).

This is a good time to remind everybody that advertising signs are not permitted in the medians, right-of-way, and on Anthem-owned property. We want Anthem streets looking good and traffic moving smoothly.

Anthem Community Council (ACC) is all in favor of an active and prosperous business climate while maintaining the community’s high standards. Advertising signs can obstruct vision, distract motorists, bicyclists or pedestrians from their ability to see traffic signals, road hazards and others using the road, or interfere with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The signs also make the streets look messy, which nobody wants.

ACC has rules for display advertising signage similar to the City of Phoenix and Maricopa County. A permit for advance requests for temporary advertising signs is on the Documents page of under “Commercial Advertising and Signage.” It’s recommended businesses review the sign laws for the City of Phoenix and Maricopa County as violations could result in a significant impact to business owners.

Businesses, like residents, are part of the Anthem community. ACC thanks the business owners and managers who follow the established guidelines and contribute to making Anthem a great place.
