Sign by-law review
The Town of Georgina’s current sign by-law was enacted in 2006. Changes in sign technology require that the by-law be reviewed.
The Town is looking for the public’s input. Residents and business owners are invited to a public open house to share their thoughts on changes to the by-law.
Date: March 3, 2020
Time: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Location: The ROC Chalet
Ideas to be considered include:
