City Reminds Citizens to Get Yard Sale Permits 5/17/2010


(Fayetteville, N.C. May 17, 2010) –Sunny weather brings citizens out in droves for yard sales and with that the City of Fayetteville’s Development Services Department would like to remind citizens to obtain yard sale permits, which are required in the city limits.

Yard sales are plentiful during warmer months – the department issues approximately 140 yard sale permits, at $10 apiece, each month during the summer. Three yard sales are allowed per address per year, maintaining residential aspects of neighborhoods.

Yard sale permits must also be acquired for sales at commercial properties and private properties and organizations, like schools and businesses. If someone wants to use commercial property for a yard sale, they must have a written letter from a manager or owner of the property.

If a church is having a sale at the church, the fee is waived. The permit is good for one day or two consecutive days.

Citizens may have three signs up to four square-feet each on the property of the sale and five directional signs, not exceeding two square-feet, on private property with the owner’s permission. Posting signs on utility poles and traffic signs is not permitted.

For more information, call the City of Fayetteville’s Development Services Department, Inspections Division at 433-1168.
