Illegal Signage Removal
Richmond Hill staff removed illegal signage in the southern end of Town on July 24 and 25. Offenders will be prosecuted when possible. A sign-removal blitz will be scheduled in the north end of Richmond Hill in August.

Hundreds of signs were removed from boulevards, light posts, etc. at the beginning of May.

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 does not 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.
