Draft Sign By-Law - Public Open House

Planning and Development staff have worked with WSP to update our municipal Sign By-law.  On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, staff will facilitate an Open House at 1111 Victoria Street, Council Chambers from 5 pm - 8 pm where businesses, commercial property owners, and the public can gather to provide input and comment on the proposed changes to the Sign By-law.  Our current and draft Sign By-law are available on the municipal website.


This would also be a great time to learn about the municipal Community Improvement Plan (CIP) and how this grant program may assist your business with any fa├žade, accessibility, signage, or parking lot improvements.


Following our public meeting, subject to potential revision, the proposed Sign By-law will go to Council for endorsement in the first quarter of 2023.
