Hope considers change to sign ordinance

Residents of Hope who plan on having garage or yard sales next spring should be aware of proposed changes to a sign ordinance. JT Doane is the town manager…

Doane explains that, under the proposed change, signs posted advertising yard or garage sales would need to be removed within 24 hours after the sale ends. Failure to do so would result in a daily fine, per sign. Doane says that a big reason for the ordinance change is to eliminate clutter around the town.

The Hope Town Council is scheduled to consider final approval of the change at its January meeting. That meeting has not yet been scheduled.
