Get signs off City property, only place on listed property or with permission

The Board Office has received another call from the Building Commissioner and Sign ordnance enforcement officer asking us to share this friendly reminder: Signs are prohibited on the strip between the sidewalk and the curb. That is against city ordinance. In fact, for-sale signs are to be placed on the seller’s property only, or with the permission of the landowner if a directional sign.  PLEASE, PLEASE remember you can only place for sale signs (or arrow) with the express permission of the landowner where it is posted, and it is NOT acceptable to post signs on City/Town land unless they have given the brokerage permission. The city/town land is typically found at the edge of the street, at the end of the street, on median strips or on the land between the sidewalk and road. (most towns have codes that prohibit placing signs in these locations).  Not only will improperly placed signs be removed, you will be subject to fines.  The Board Office will follow up on reports to try to curb continued violations.  Flouting town rules makes us all look bad and jeopardizes your ability to continue to use lawn signs at all.  Please be the example and place them properly on the property for sale – period. If you see a sign out of place, please email the Board Office with the location of the sign so that we may bring it to the Designated REALTORS attention.  Thank you!
