Town Council adopts new sign regulations

RIVERVIEW (N.B.) Commercial signage can add vibrancy to town streets and be a vital tool for businesses. Until recently, the Town of Riverview did not have regulations to support safety and aesthetic standards for portable signage. 

A new by-law and application process has been adopted to regulate signage location, types, sizes and the length of time a portable sign can be erected. These guidelines will balance the value to businesses with the need to ensure safety for passing pedestrians and motorists as well as maintaining visual appeal. 

Effective April 1, 2019, all portable signs will require a permit. In addition, signs will no longer be permitted to be placed along the riverfront lands owned by the Town.

“We understand the important role signage plays in helping businesses promote their goods and services,” says Shane Thomson, director of economic development. “In public consultation, community stakeholders expressed a clear need to develop signage standards to reduce clutter and that they be well designed, maintained and installed in appropriate locations”
