The Channahon Community Electronic Message Sign is not a “free speech zone” but is instead a vehicle for conveying information to the public about events and messages deemed appropriate by the Village and Park District, who own the sign and maintain ultimate authority over any content posted.

Only Village and Park District Staff may post messages, and at all times postings remain subject to the approval or denial of the Village and Park District.

The Village and Park District reserve the right to prohibit any message on a case-by-case basis and all such decisions shall be deemed final.
