LP sign ordinance explained

Many people have expressed a lack of knowledge when it comes to the Town of Lake Placid’s sign ordinance; not knowing what signs are permitted and which are not. Therefore, I would like to help by explaining our sign ordinance.

When officers pull a sign it is turned over to Code Enforcement. The Code Enforcement officer then issues a letter to the sign originator that reads: “This is a notice that there was a sign(s) placed in the City of Lake Placid without a permit. The sign(s) has been removed and is/are now being stored at the Lake Placid Police Department. The sign will be held for no more than 14 days. When the 14 days have passed, the signs will be discarded. The cost of the sign pick-up will be $10 if you want the sign back. If you do not want them back I will dispose of them and you will not need to pay the fee. Just note that this is a first notice and fines will be issued for the next occurrence.”
