Dover begins annual mission of removing illegal signs
Assistant City Planner Tim Corwin said the city is conducting an ongoing sweep — which began Monday — for illegal and temporary “off-site” advertising to enforce its zoning ordinance.
“Most of the time those business are not located in Dover. When I follow up with these businesses, they are usually unaware of the rules. However, we do have some repeat offenders,” Corwin said.
The city will keep confiscated signs for 30 days before they are recycled or destroyed. Any business interested in reclaiming their signs are subject to a fee — “based on the actual cost of staff hours and equipment use,” according to a city news release.
Repeat offenders may be subject to prosecution and fines.
