The City of Toronto is asking for input from the public on 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, changes to Toronto's sign regulations have been proposed and were introduced at the December 4, 2013 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 is 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. Members of the public are invited to attend one of the following workshops for a brief presentation, and to speak with City staff to share thoughts and ideas on this subject.

Public consultation sessions will be held from 6:30p.m. to 8:30p.m. on the following dates:

Tuesday February 4 - York Civic Centre

Wednesday February 5 - City Hall
