ONCE A POSTING CONTRACTOR HAS BEEN CONFIRMED, WE WILL SEND THE APPROVED MAPS/POSTING NUMBER TO THE POSTING CONTRACTOR COPYING THE PRODUCTION REPRESENTATIVE. 

RULES RE: NO STOPPING/PARKING SIGNS:

  • The signs must include the dates and times of the posting, your company name, a production company representative’s phone number, and the assigned posting number.
  • Be sure to create a document that states the posting number and your company name to place in the windshields of all your vehicles to ensure that you do not get ticketed (Production responsibility).
  • For requested non-metered spaces: you must post signs a minimum of 72 hours in advance; for requested metered spaces:  you must be posted a minimum of 24 hours in advance. 
  • If you are posting in a residential location without meters, you must purchase/rent stands to hang No Stopping signs on. An example of a place to purchase stands is Brickley Productions, located here in the city.
  • Signs MAY NOT be hung on utility poles or private property.
  • Upon arrival to the location, if you have taken more spaces than needed, please remove signs for parking not being used.
  • Remove the signs promptly once filming is complete or they are no longer needed.
