continued from page 1 placement of signs
Interfere with normal
maintenance efforts Currently, signs may be removed and placed in the County’s corporate maintenance yard, and be picked up by anyone without cost. The County is, however, considering imposing financial penalties for improper placement of signs, rather than just removal of the signs.
The Santa Cruz Association of REALTORS® strongly suggests that all signs not in compliance with the above rules be removed by the end of July. This action will demonstrate to the County Board of Supervisors and Public Works that the membership of the Santa Cruz Association of REALTORS® is willing to abide by the Sign Ordinance and Permit, and that stronger rules and penalties are not necessary. It is our understanding that the sign issue may be considered again in mid-August.
Please refer to the “Members- Only” section of the Association website (scaor.org) for sign regulations throughout the county. If you have any questions or comments please contact Barbara Palmer, the 2006 SCAOR Local Governmental Relations Committee Chairperson, at (831) 688-7434 or email@example.com.
