KSAC to Continue Removal of Illegal Billboards Local GovernmentJuly 10, 2013Written by: Chris Patterson FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) will continue its drive to rid the Corporate Area of illegal billboards and signs that have been erected without the Corporation’s approval.This was stated by Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke, during Tuesday’s (July 9) monthly meeting of the KSAC, at its Church Street chambers in downtown Kingston.She noted that there are several cases that are long outstanding “and where we have several contacts without any seeming change in the status of these signs.”“In short order, we will move to the next phase of our programme, which entails the removal of signs for which persons have been given adequate notice and have failed to comply with the requirements,” she said, and encouraged persons to regularise their signs and billboards to avoid the penalties.The Mayor informed that internally, the Corporation continues to make changes to ensure that applications are completed within the shortest possible time. “At the last sitting of our Building and Town Planning Committee, decisions were made on 34 applications,” she said.She noted that the Corporation will continue to ensure that signs and billboards are sited in appropriate areas, are properly installed, do not pose a threat to the security of motorists and pedestrians alike, and do not detract from the aesthetics of the environs.“The additional revenue generated puts the KSAC in a better position to finance the many services we are called upon to provide, but most importantly we have to remain cognisant of our responsibilities to ensure that construction is done in accordance with industry standards, to prevent injuries to the public,” she said.In February this year, the KSAC commenced its drive to remove illegal billboards and signs in the city.Contact: Chris Patterson RelatedFencing of Montego Bay Civic Centre to Cost $17 Million RelatedSizzling Summer Savings Returns Downtown Advertisements RelatedJPs Encouraged to Get Involved in Restorative Justice
