Open House Sign Policy

Cordillera has established the following Open House sign policy that limits the number and the appearance of the signs.

Open House Days and Times


Daily, 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Open House Signs


Any property owner or realtor may host 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).")

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. Balloons, flags or other devices are not permitted. Public Safety reserves the right to decide if signs are appropriate. If in doubt, please contact the DRB. 

Open House and Directional Signs


Realtors, not Public Safety, are responsible for placing and removing the signs. Realtors are required to use the approved signs and contact the Divide Gatehouse with 24-hour notice giving day, time and address of the event. 

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

Sign Requirements


Sign Template Requirements are as follows:
  • Color: Green PMS 3305C
  • Dimensions: 18-inches high by 24-inches wide Steel Panel Digital Print PMS 3305C
  • Logo: Use the Cordillera Metro District logo. 
  • The Slifer Smith & Frampton real estate office located adjacent to the athletic center has a stock of permissible open house signs available for use.

Cordillera Sign Policy


The Cordillera Design Review Board (DRB) Sign Policy (Divide 3.2.12, Ranch 4.2.12 or Construction Rules and Regulations 7.02.24) 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.
