Real Estate Agencies posting a house for sale, property owner advertising a house For Sale by Owner, and/or builders posting new home construction may display signs prepared according the Definition of a Standard Sign without prior written authorization from the Muirfield Design Control Committee (MDCC). These signs are designed to blend into the environment rather than project attention.

Definition of a Standard Sign:

Colors: Signs shall be (Olympic) Oxford Brown or (Sherwin-Williams) Wolf Drive Grey (equal to Pantone #418 background with an off-white or cream (equal to Pantone #4545) lettering (not white). This color standard applies to all panel elements of the sign. Other color combinations are prohibited.

Lettering: Copy must be a standard block, non-serified typeface such as Helvetica. Exception is granted where the proper name of the entity is a "stylized" typeface which is verified by use on business cards or letterhead.

Logos: Graphic logo images which represent the existing identity of the Company are permitted provided that such logo does not exceed 20% of the sign face.

Quantity: No more than one Real Estate or For Sale by Owner sign and/or one builder sign may be posted on any one lot.

Placement: One approved Real Estate, For Sale by Owner, and Builder sign shall be placed on the front of the lot within the buildable area of the property. The sign must be oriented with the address of the property. Signage is prohibited to be located along the boulevard, at the rear of the lot, or facing the golf courses.

Term: The term of such use is limited to a period ending when the house goes into contract.
