Niagara-on-the-Lake taking sign permits seriously in downtown heritage district

Niagara-on-the-Lake will be fining businesses which don't have the proper signs permits, particularly in the tourist-heavy Queen and Picton Sts downtown area.

The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake takes its downtown heritage area pretty seriously as it’s essential to their tourism business.

So, once again, they are warning downtown businesses, particularly in the tourist-heavy Queen and Picton Sts area, that they must have sign permits and heritage permits to advertise their goods.

So much as an unauthorized sandwich board out front could see a business owner fined $350.

“Your business is an essential contributor to our Town’s economic prosperity, and your dedication and service to our community and beyond are valuable and appreciated,” said Erin Montanaro, town Supervisor of By-law Enforcement.

“As we transition to the bustling spring and summer season, the Town wishes to inform business owners that the Town’s Sign Bylaw will once again be enforced.”

For businesses that need the information on which permits are necessary, that information is HERE.
