Should Mobile Signs Be Addressed Under Westford Bylaws?
Welcome to our question of the day. If you have a question you'd like us to ask our readers, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Under Article 10.2 of the Westford Zoning Bylaws, a sign is described as...
"Any letter, word, symbol, drawing, picture, design, device, article or object that advertises, calls attention to or indicates any premises, person or activity, whatever the nature of the material and manner of composition or construction, when the same is placed out of doors in view of the general public or placed indoors for exterior observance, except temporary indoor paper signs advertising sales, promotions or special events."
A few of our readers have pondered whether or not the large truck that sits in front of Cash for Gold for extended periods at a time would be included under the town's zoning bylaws for signs.
Although it is debatable whether a vehicle that remains stationary for days on end could meet the definition of a sign, there are currently no portions of the zoning bylaws addressing signs on vehicles.
So today, we want to ask you whether you think signs attached to vehicles like the Cash for Gold truck should be specifically addressed under the town's zoning bylaws.
