Weekly Question: How Do You Feel about Temporary Signs in Town?

Temporary signs pop up around Weston all the time, but how do you feel about them?

Weston takes a lot of pride in the look of the town, which is why the town projects its unique charm and appeal.

But where do all the temporary signs in town fit within that charm and appeal?

Specific examples include signs advertising flu shots or seasonal products, signs in front yards of work sites where contractors or landscapers are working, lost pet fliers on utility poles, or special event advertisements. The intersection of School Street and Route 20 seems to always have a sign or two.

We want to know what you think: How do you feel about all the temporary signs around Weston? What guidelines, if any, would you like to see enacted?

I hate the temporary signs (AKA street spam, bandit signs), whether stuck in the earth or nailed to poles, most particularly the ones not associated with any work-in-progress or Real Estate offerings. They are just from sleazy operators trying to avoid paying for legitimate advertising space. Lately I've seen many in the grass areas at intersections from a roofing company...I'll never do business with them. I wish there was a law (like below) that town employees would remove the signs as they encounter them and bill the advertiser a hefty disposal fee. http://mineola.patch.com/articles/town-of-hempstead-announces-legislation-outlawing-utility-pole-signs http://www.causs.org/
