Signs

By-Law 2017-35 (Signs) regulates the use and location of all signs within the city including setbacks, height and types of signs.

Highlights

The by-law regulates private and public signs placed on lands, buildings, and other
structures within the corporate limits of the City of Sault Ste. Marie for the purpose of:
 
  • Protecting and enhancing the aesthetic qualities and visual character of the City of Sault Ste. Marie.
  • Providing for signs whose characteristics are appropriate to their use and function.
  • Preventing signs that impact the safety of pedestrians or motorists.
  • Balancing opportunities for business expression with the interests of the Sault Ste. Marie public and community.
Signs are regulated by type, and by-law provisions outline number, location, size and setbacks of various types of signs. This would apply to all types of signs including pole signs, wall signs, roof signs, and portable signs. Applications to locate signs and permits can be obtained in the Building Division office.
