The Village of East Hampton is , the Town of Shelter Island has already condensed realtor's signs to the size of something that could fit in your mailbox, and now the Village of North Haven has proposed doing away with them altogether.
According to a report from The Sag Harbor Express, North Haven Trustee Jeff Sander proposed ridding the small hamlet of all signs, except streets signs and address signs. There are also business signs and the village's own sign to consider, too.
Village Attorney Anthony Tohill said he has to check whether prohibiting such signs completely is something that would hold up in court, The Express reported. The board has been considering an amendment to its sign code since December.
In Southampton Village, "for sale" signs may be no bigger than 3 square feet in a residential district, and no bigger than 4 square feet in a nonresidential district. Signs can only be 4 feet tall, and while "open house" may be added to the sign on the day of, "in contract" and "sold" signs are never permitted.
While Tohill drafts new legislation, we were curious what our readers thought of the idea of ridding yards of temporary signs such as marking houses for sale and under construction, as well as political signs.
