What are the ordinances pertaining to garage sales?

Residential garage sales should conform with these guidelines from the City’s zoning code:

  • Location: All garage sale items must be located behind the front building setback line. This translates to the rear yard or behind the front (face) of a front facing, attached garage. A garage sale may not be located in the front yard.
  • Duration: A garage sale may not last longer than two (2) days and may not be repeated more than four (4) times a year.
  • Permit: There is no permit or license required from the City for a garage sale.

For additional information, call the Planning Department at 491-1430. Please refer to the Zoning Code for full ordinance requirements.
