​Sign Installations

Please note, when posting small temporary signage on roadsides for events, advertising or information that signs installations are required to be back off the road allowance on private property. Some resident are unaware of the Municipal road allowance and believe that their property extends right to the edge of the road to where they are maintaining their lawns or driveways. The road allowance is approximately 10 meters from the centerline of the road or at the point where fence lines, bell boxes and hydro poles are located. Signs that are installed within the road allowance are in contravention of Road By-law 12-31 and will be removed by Township Staff so they do not interfere with Township maintenance activities.
Larger permanent signs even though on private property may still require Township permits.
