The Nuisance Sign Removal Program is a way residents can participate and help the City of Mississauga keep boulevards free of illegal signs.
“The City takes pride in maintaining and ensuring our boulevards are clean and free of illegal signs,” said Councillor Pat Saito. “With residents’ help to remove the illegal streets signs in our neighbourhoods, we can ensure our City boulevards look neat and tidy.”
To participate in the program, residents must:
Residents may remove temporary signs which are 1 m2 (10 ft2) or less in area and placed between the sidewalk and the curb. For safety reasons, residents cannot remove signs from medians, traffic islands or any sign displayed on the travelled portion of the road.
For signs that cannot be safely removed, or to report a nuisance sign, residents can call 3-1-1 for assistance. City staff from various departments patrols our streets and are diligent in removing illegal signs. The City also hires six students from May to August to assist with sign removal.
