Nuisance Sign Removal Program; Residents Can Help Keep Our Streets Neat and Tidy

Local government | May 19, 2015

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:

  • be 18 years of age or older
  • carefully read the Nuisance Sign Removal Agreement;
  • print and sign two copies of the agreement; and
  • bring or mail both copies to the City’s Sign Unit, located at City Hall, 300 City Centre Drive, Planning and Building Customer Service Centre, 3rd Floor.

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.

For more information on Nuisance Signs, the Public Nuisance By-law or the Nuisance Sign Removal Program, please call 3-1-1.
