Signs on Town Property

The Town of West Newbury prohibits all signs on public property without prior approval by the Board of Selectmen.  All requests to place a sign on public property must include the reason, the location(s), and duration the sign will need to be posted for and confirmation that permission has been obtained from the property owner.  Applicant must acquire permission from the property owner if placing a sign on the property or in the right of way.  Real estate open house signs are permitted as long as they are posted and removed the day of the open house.
