Clean up the Signs!

Most Bridgton residents know that a new Sign Ordinance went into effect on June 11, 2019 -but you may not be aware of some of the changes. It is important to review the ordinance to ensure you are not in violation.

In early Spring, Code Enforcement will be notifying those not in compliance and requiring removal. Take a moment now and ensure you are adhering to regulations.

Please contact Brenda Day, Code Enforcement Officer or Kari Downs, Administrative Assistant with any questions.

Thank you!
