City clearing out illegal advertising signs

The City is now cluttered with 141 fewer advertising signs than last year.

For the past two years, The City has been enforcing a 2002 voter initiative that banned new advertising signs and a 2006 city law that banned all signs hoisted before 2002 without a permit.

The enforcement efforts have led to the removal of 318 illegal signs, including 141 that were removed over the past 12 months, according to a San Francisco Planning Department report.

The City has collected $119,461 in fines for illegal sign violations, the report says.
