Open House Sign Policy

The Cordillera Property Owners Association (CPOA) recognizes the necessity of signage in order to assist property owners and the real estate community in selling real estate. Therefore, the CPOA has established the following sign policy that allows signage yet controls the number and the appearance of the signs.

Open House Days and Times

Tuesdays: Divide and Ranch neighborhoods 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Thursdays: Summit and Territory neighborhoods 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Saturdays: All neighborhoods 1:00-5:00 p.m.

Open House Signs

Any property owner or realtor may conduct an "Open House" on a property that is for sale and that is substantially complete. ("Substantially Complete" is defined in the Cordillera Construction Rules and Regulations as, "A residence which (a) is complete to the extent that it contains final floor coverings (e.g., carpet)."

The rules further state that one open house sign may be posted in front of the property while a qualified real estate sales person or property owner is present. (Signs posted in windows inside the property are not allowed at any time.) The sign may not display any realtor information, logos or other identification and, must be removed at the end of the open house event. The sign may have no balloons, flags or other devices used to attract attention. Cordillera Public Safety reserves the right to decide if signs are appropriate. There is no requirement to contact DRB to register these signs. If in doubt, please contact the DRB ahead of time.

Open House & Directional Signs

Property owners or realtors may contact Public Safety to have "Open House" directional signs posted at intersections, on main streets or in front of the house. Requests for signs must be received by Public Safety via email 24 hours prior to the event. Availability of signs is limited and the signs will be utilized on a first come first serve basis.  Public Safety will be responsible for posting and removing the "Open House" signs and reserves the right to control the use and number of signs. Public Safety will post a sign at the closest Gatehouse that says "Open House Today."

Realtors or property owners may leave 8 ½ x 11-inch flyers at the closest gatehouse for distribution for their open house events. Gate staff will distribute flyers and maps to those people who request open house information. Public Safety reserves the right to not accept flyers or maps if they contain information beyond that necessary for the open house, or if they are of excessive size or volume. Cordillera Public Safety does not prepare maps or flyers.

Cordillera Sign Policy

The Cordillera Design Review Board (DRB) Sign Policy prohibits any signs at any property or lot that advertise a realtor, advertise a property for sale or, states that a property is available. This includes any boxes with flyers or pamphlets. The policy makes no differentiation as to whether the sign is posted by a realtor or a property owner with the exception of  "Open House" signs. You may reference Cordillera Construction Rules and Regulations or Cordillera Design Review Guidelines for additional information.
