County legislation would ban small signs in a move some call "anti-business"
After the April’s Democratic primary, Montgomery County Council member George Leventhal (D-At large) has had enough of the political campaign signs in the county.
Seeking to rid the county of the “eyesores” along roadways and neighborhoods, Leventhal sponsored a bill to prevent further proliferation of signage.
On June 21, Leventhal introduced Zoning Text Amendment 16-06, would enforce stricter penalties on political candidates, non-profit groups, realtors and business owners who chose to advertise with temporary signs near public road ways. A hearing for the bill is scheduled for Aug. 2.
