Fairview To Strictly Enforce Temporary Sign Ordinance

Fairview Township has received several complaints recently about the clutter of temporary signs on businesses located on Rt. 309 in the township, resulting in “sign pollution”.

Fairview Township Zoning Officer Frank Tirico states the township has an ordinance prohibiting temporary signs for longer than 7 days. This ordinance reads in part: “may have five signs per lot for a total of 60 sq. ft. combined, and shall be displayed for seven consecutive days maximum.” This is a notice to all business owners in Fairview Township that as of October 1, 2013, the Fairview Municipal Ordinance, entitled Article VII, Signs, will be strictly enforced. A grace period of 30 days beginning October 1, will allow store owners to examine the above mentioned ordinance, and it will be available for purchase at the Fairview Twp. Municipal Building. This will also allow changes to be made to store fronts in order to comply. After the grace period, fines will be imposed for sign violations.

For any questions regarding the above, please contact the Fairview Township Zoning Officer at 474-9676 during his business hours only on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a. m. to 11:00 a. m., or Tuesday evenings from 6 to 7 p. m.
