Central City SRO Collaborative Uses Colour of Authority Inappropriately on this Utility Pole Posting

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Yeaaahhhh, this might be news to some people but you don’t need to be a “City-funded contractor” to make a posting on a post legally in the 415. Get all the deets below on that score.

Anyway, here’s what this old flyer is saying, as of yesterday:

“Central City SRO Collaborative is a City-Funded Contractor – DO NOT REMOVE POSTING”

Click to expand

The other thing is that whoever put up this flyer did a half-assed job so it doesn’t conform to the shape of the pole and it doesn’t have a legible posting date in the lower right hand corner. See below.

So CCSROC, you think you’re special but you not. [Minus five points for Slytherin. OMG, Harry's coming in July!!!]

The rules are easy to find an implement, right? See below.

Now, Go Forth and Sin No More, CCSROC.

Posting Signs from the DPW:

“Please Note:
The SF Cleanup Project endorsed by Quinn Cooper and Neighbors For Livable Neighborhoods endorsed by Tom Miller or Jessica Miller are not affiliated with the Department of Public Works or any City Agency in the City and County of San Francisco. If you receive a letter from one of these entities about signs you have posted, please submit it to DPW, Director’s Office, City Hall, Room 348, San Francisco, CA 94102 and DPW will deliver it to the City Attorney’s office for investigation. For more information, contact DPW’s Bureau of Street Use and Mapping at 554-5810.”

The public may post information on some utility poles if the postings follow regulations outlined in Article 5.6 of the Public Works Code. The law was adopted to ensure that flyers posted on public property do not contribute to litter or blight. Illegal postings may be removed by DPW and are subject to fines from $50 to $500.

Signs are defined as any card, decoration, poster, campaign sign, or any object containing or bearing writing that is affixed, posted or fastened to a utility or light pole that is permanently attached to the street or sidewalk. Signs do not include handbills, banners or A-Frame boards. Bulletin boards designed for neighborhood postings are exempt from this regulation. Signs attached to buildings are regulated by Part II Chapter I of the Building Code.

Tips for Legally Posting Signs on Public Property

To legally place a sign on a utility pole, it must:

Be less than 11 inches in height
No higher than 12 feet from the ground
Conform to the shape of the pole
Be attached with tape or other non-adhesive material such as twine, string or other non-metal banding material
Include a legible posting date in the lower right hand corner
Be removed after 10 days, if the sign is promoting a date specific event
Be removed within 70 days of the posting date
Not be installed on historic street light poles*, traffic signal poles or traffic directional sign poles.
* Historic street light poles are on these streets:

Market Street from 1 Market to 2490 Market
Mission Street from 16th Street to 24th Street
Grant Avenue from Bush Street to Broadway Street
The Embarcadero from King Street to Jefferson Street
Lamp Posts on Fisherman’s Wharf from Hyde to Powell
