Acting in the position of a provider of information to our membership, here are two sides to concerns regarding election signs and where they can be placed in our neighborhoods. Mississauga and Burlington have changed their rules and Oakville is now in the process of reviewing their own, with an eye to falling into step with our neighboring communities.

Here is the link to the Ward 2-Councilors’ position on election signs:

At the bottom you will see the attachment (“Keep Elections Visible…”) that contains the position of the JCRA’s Board on election signs. The JCRA asked that we “advise residents that they can register to speak at council by contacting the Town clerk or send in a written submission.” The deadline is Feb. 23, 2015.
