About the Program

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Commission (BPSC) seeks to increase community awareness of the impact that motor vehicle speeding has on bicycle and pedestrian safety. The yard sign program provides a tangible way for like-minded individuals to spread this message in their own neighborhood.

Program Guidelines

The program works like a library - yard signs and stakes can be checked out in packages of 10, for a period two weeks at a time. Pickup and drop-off occurs at the Planning and Transportation Department offices in Bloomington City Hall, 401 N Morton St.

Yard signs must be placed on private property (i.e. not in the space between the sidewalk and the street, which is typically public property). At corner lots, signs must be placed at least 25-ft from the corner of the intersection, so as not to obstruct the view of road users looking for oncoming traffic.

Check-out Yard Signs for Your Neighborhood

Contact Scott Robinson or Beth Rosenbarger at (812) 349-3423, or via planning@bloomington.in.gov, to make a reservation for your neighborhood.
