A-Frames in Construction Zone

Dear BIA members,

The Town of Oakville has just informed me that A-frame signs (or other sidewalk sign or structure) are not permitted on the sidewalk within the construction zone unless you have private property where it can be safely located and not encroach on the sidewalk (i.e. set backs that include private property, entry stoop that is private, etc).  The town indicated they did not issue permits in the construction zone for signs and wanted to give businesses the opportunity to move any signs to avoid risk of having them removed (which then requires a fee to get them back).

If you have any questions about the ability to put signage out please contact Mary Vallee:
