The local sign bylaw is strict according to a local merchant.The owner of an optomitry/ jewlery /first/ nation art. Says she can’t put a sign board in the sidewalk. however she says she can put anything she wants in the first meter of walk from the store front. She chooses to put two deer made from tree branches to draw attention to her front door. This is not a problem with the bylaw people,and although it is legal she still can’t put something there that will hinder passage. She must walk a balance to draw attention but not put some one at risk.
A number of years ago her partner had a contention over a huge pair of glasses on the back of a pickup truck that he drove about town.
