Rules for temporary signs finalized, placed on Salem ballot
At a second public hearing on the ordinance, the Planning Board quickly approved a handful of changes that were suggested at the first public hearing at the end of December. The measure will now appear on the March town election ballot
The signs may go up two weeks before an event and must be removed within 48 hours after the event is over. Originally, the board was looking to have the signs removed within 24 hours.
The temporary signs may be used for events that take place no more than three times per year. The original proposal limited it to two events per year.
“I feel that the changes that were made make it easier for the public to put up signs,” said Planning Board member Paul Pelletier.
