Take down signs
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.
I live on Wembley Road where apparently anyone with a sandwich board or a hammer and nail can put up a sign.
Some have gone as far as to chain their signs to a public utility pole. On Saturday, I counted no less than 12 sandwich boards all pertaining to the same development.
I believe there are bylaws to cover this problem, but the consensus seems to be: ‘why take them down, they’ll only come back’. Yes that’s true, if you only remove them once a year.
If these signs come down as fast as they go up the problem will diminish substantially. I’m sure the local road-maintenance contractor drives down this road at least once a day. It would take mere minutes to remove violating signs.
Please demand enforcement of local bylaws.
