  • War on signs

    over 1 year ago
    War on signs

    We have declared war!

    Our City is saturated with signs. Some of these play an important and necessary role. But many are out of date and no longer needed. Some signs have inconsistent wording or duplicate other controls already in place. Some signs also have a negative tone, communicating things that cannot be done, rather than encouraging enjoyment of our spaces.

    Do you support our war?

    Go here to view the trial locations and share your thoughts on our war on signs.
