(a) Placards. A permittee shall display a placard at the site subject to a street space occupancy permit. The placard shall be mounted on the exterior of the fronting property, or where the site is vacant or it is impractical to mount the placard on the fronting property, the permittee may attach the placard on a post, pole, wall, or other object. A permittee shall mount the placard in a location where members of the public can easily read the required information but cannot tamper with the placard. The permittee shall mount the placard 72 hours in advance of the occupancy authorized in the permit, shall keep the placard posted for the entire term of the permit, and shall remove it immediately upon termination of the permit. All information contained on the placard shall be legible. The placard shall contain the following information: name of the permittee, a telephone number where the permittee can be reached during the hours of the permit, the duration of the permit including start and stop dates and hours of use, a geographic description of the street space occupied under the permit, the permit number, and the Department's street space hotline telephone number. The Department shall provide a placard to each permittee. It shall be the responsibility of the permittee to insert the required information, mount the placard, and ensure proper maintenance of the placard. If any required information on a placard must be modified, the permittee shall obtain a new placard rather than change the information on the existing placard. If the Director follows the procedures set forth in Section 724.4(b), he or she may waive or modify the provisions of this subsection as they pertain to a particular type of permitted activities.
(b) Signs. Signs shall be posted every 20 linear feet of occupied space with at least one sign at each end of the occupied space. Signs shall contain the following information: the effective dates and times of the permit; the permit number; the Department of Public Works' street space hotline telephone number; and notice that if the Public Works Code requires an on-site placard, additional information about the permit may be found on the placard. The permittee shall post signs 72 hours in advance of the occupancy authorized in the permit and remove such signs upon termination of the permit. A permittee must maintain signs during the entire term of occupancy and during the hours specified in the permit. If any information required on a sign must be modified, the permittee shall install new signs rather than change the information on the existing sign. If signs are removed, modified, or altered in any way, it shall be the permittee's responsibility to install new signs containing the required information.
(c) Good Neighbor Policy. Notwithstanding the above, if a permittee does not require use of the permit area for all hours covered by the permit, the permittee shall allow members of the public to park vehicles in legal parking spaces. Rules governing the good neighbor policy shall be developed pursuant to Section 724.4(b).
