New Baltimore County Illegal Roadside Sign Law - Summer 2006

Concerned citizens don't get a bounty for collecting illegal signs but you can get the satisfaction of helping to improve the appearance of our public roadsides. The County Council passed legislation which allows individuals to remove signs placed illegally on public property. There are strict laws regarding placement of signs of private property but the new law does not permit citizens to remove from anything but public property. If you feel that there are illegal signs erected on private property, you can contact Baltimore County zoning enforecment. Citizens are allowed, not deputized, so we must proceed at our own risk
