The City of Richmond is undertaking an update to its Sign Bylaw No. 5560 and is seeking public input on the proposed amendments. The deadline to provide feedback is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 11, 2016.

This Bylaw update provides an opportunity to address signs in a manner consistent with the City’s social vision for shaping an inclusive, engaged, and caring community to support community harmony. The objectives of the proposed Sign Bylaw include:

  • to update the Sign Bylaw to a modern standard and ensure that it reflects the current and anticipated needs of the City, can effectively regulate the type of signs being experienced, considers legislative authority and legal requirements.
  • to improve the content, structure, and format of the Sign Bylaw to increase its effectiveness, user friendliness, clarity, and ease of interpretation by the public, developers and City staff.
  • to strengthen and embed efforts to de-clutter in the Bylaw.
  • to address deficiencies in the definition section; accommodate trends in sign technology and respond to business needs (e.g. electronic signs, multi-faceted free standing signs, etc.); additional types of signs to be regulated; correct errors and omissions.

Feedback received through this process will be analyzed and incorporated into the draft regulations proposed for the updated Sign Bylaw for Council consideration by spring 2017.

Questions about this process or the proposed Bylaw can be emailed to signsconsult@richmond.ca.

Thank you for your participation!

The comment form is open until Sunday, December 11 at 11:59 p.m.
