Harris County Employees Remove Yard Signs Opposing County Action on Zoning

Yard signs encouraging public participation at a controversial community development meeting in Harris County were confiscated from yards just one day after a widespread distribution effort by activists, but citizens say the county employees who collected the signs did so to silence opposition and that the county employees who collected the signs work for the department pushing the initiative the signs call on people to oppose.

The Harris County Community Development Department, charged with policies and enforcement for matters of public health, safety, and welfare, is considering a high-density housing project in conflict with the county’s two acre minimum lot size requirement for housing.

The initiative has prompted citizens to print yard signs encouraging attendance at the upcoming meetings, but the day after a very public campaign began to distribute the signs, the county began picking the signs up off of private property, citing “complaints.”

News of the sign removal spread like wildfire on social media last week and prompted citizens to call the Harris County Community Development Office. Citizens in the ‘Save Harris County GA’ Facebook group shared that Director Brian Williams told citizens that signs were removed by the county because they were “personal and not political,” which gave the county the authority to remove the signs from private property.
