PURPOSE OF REPORT

This report outlines proposed amendments to Traffic Bylaw 18/2005 that create alignment to amendments proposed to the Land Use Bylaw 9/2005.

The proposed amendments relate to the hours “Election Signs” may be posted, specifically the number of hours following the closure of polling stations.

COUNCIL DIRECTION

On August 21, 2017, Council passed the following motion:

(PH-17-022)
That Schedule C.6(12), Sections 12(a)(i) and 12(a)(ii) of Bylaw 9/2005 be amended by replacing "24" with "48".

BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION

Administration identified reference and restrictions related to election sign placement in both the Traffic Bylaw (18/2005) and Land Use Bylaw (9/2005). The Traffic Bylaw regulates the placement of election signage on certain (named) public roadways, while the Land Use Bylaw regulates the placement of election signage on private property. To prevent inconsistency, both documents require an amendment to the requested allowance time frames for election signs.

The existing Bylaw documents contain a requirement that ‘Election Signs” be removed by no later than 24 hours after the closing of polling stations. The proposed amendments will result in a requirement that ‘Election Signs” be removed by no later than 48 hours after the closing of polling stations.
