Illegal Signage Removal
Richmond Hill staff removed hundreds of signs from boulevards, light posts, etc. at the beginning of May and will prosecute offenders when possible. Staff continue to remove signs throughout the summer months.

Residents may remove illegal signage from their property. To report illegal signage on public property, please email or call 905-771-0198.

Note: Richmond Hill cannot remove signs from Regional Roads but we will report problem areas to the Region of York.

The Sign By-law 52-09, regulates the size, location and number of signs that are permitted on any property, business and/or at special events within the Town of Richmond Hill. Its intent is to regulate signs for the purpose of improving community appearance and traffic, structural, and fire safety, land use compatibility and the ease of property or premises identification and for the purposes of carrying out the objectives of the Official Plan and the public interest.

In addition, the document provides guidance regarding the signage application and approval process.
