Portable Signs

Portable signs promoting businesses are not allowed on municipal land. The only exceptions are for businesses displaced by road construction, or for non-profit groups.

Portable signs promoting businesses on private land need a permit.
 
Spaces of municipal land called municipal markers are reserved for the use of non-profit organizations. These spaces need to be booked in advance.
