Bracebridge is advising that the Town’s Property Standards Officer will be performing a routine review and removal of signs placed around Bracebridge to ensure they are in compliance with the Town’s Sign By-Law. During this review, staff are focusing on signs posted at the roadside and on Town and District of Muskoka rights of way.

So far, over the course of two days, 150 unpermitted signs were removed in the urban area of town from trees and poles, road allowances, and from areas that did not meet setback requirements or that were not in compliance with other provisions of the by-law.

Residents and businesses are reminded to follow the provisions of the town’s Sign By-law prior to purchasing or posting any signs.

The By-law outlines the regulations that apply across the municipality on all lands for a variety of organizations, including contractors, charities, events, elections and more, and applies to a wide range of sign types and sizes. The town says permits are required for most signs
