Town of Oakville reviewing regulations for election signs


Published June 28, 2021 at 3:46 pm

The Town of Oakville is currently reviewing regulations for election signs and is seeking feedback from its residents as a result.

Oakville residents are encouraged to complete a short online survey that is open now until July 12, 2021.

“I encourage residents to take five minutes out of their day to complete the online survey,” said Mayor Rob Burton.

“With an upcoming election in 2022, your feedback is vital in shaping election sign regulations in Oakville.”

Feedback collected will help town staff develop recommendations for the town’s Sign Bylaw.

The current Sign By-law 2018-153 states that signs may only be displayed 45 days prior to election days and includes restrictions on locations where signs may be placed, certain sign support requirements as well as permit requirements.

While the questionnaire will be anonymous, residents will have the option to provide an email address if they would like to in order to receive updates on the review such as a public information meeting planned for September.

Staff is expected to present the recommendations to council this fall.
