Follow up public meeting scheduled for input on proposed electronic and illuminated sign and billboard regulations
The City of Toronto will hold a final public meeting to discuss proposed changes to sign regulations related to electronic and illuminated signs and billboards.
In 2013, the City of Toronto initiated a comprehensive research project that included a planning and design review, an update of traffic safety implications, and a poll to assess public opinion in Toronto towards electronic and illuminated signs.
Based on the study findings and public input, changes to Toronto's sign regulations have been proposed and were introduced at the December 4 meeting of the City's Planning and Growth Management Committee. A copy of the staff report and background material is available at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2013.PG29.4
Public consultation has played an important role in this work, and public input remains an essential element of this process. All Toronto residents and businesses are encouraged to participate and provide the City with feedback about this important issue in advance of it going to the Planning & Growth Management Committee.
A public meeting will take place Monday March 10 at Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West (in the Council Chamber). Doors open at 6 p.m. and a staff presentation will be given at 7 p.m.
Attendees will be able to speak with staff, ask questions, and provide feedback and ideas.
For those unable to attend in person, comments can also be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
