All Signs Must Comply with the Sign By-law

Keeping the District of Summerland clean and litter free of unwanted signage and advertising is always a concern to our residents. To ensure that unwanted signs are not posted everywhere, Council enacted a Sign By-law to regulate the types of signs permitted.

A permit is required for the installation of new signage.
