Bylaw amendment limiting political signs pushed forward
City of Cranbrook council passed three readings Monday night (June 27) to amend the city’s sign bylaw to establish a maximum number of election signs permitted along Highway 3/95 boulevards to a combined maximum of 20 political signs within the municipal boundaries for any political organization and/or candidate.
Council considered a report from staff regarding options for the placement and possible restriction of election signs along the Highway 3/95 arterial highway boulevard on June 13. Council directed staff to amend the city’s sign bylaw to allow a maximum of 20 election signs per candidate for any official elections within the municipality (federal, provincial or municipal/school district).
If approved, the nomination packages for all elections in the city will be updated to ensure all candidates running for any elections in the city are aware of the new restrictions.
