Signs are always a contentious issue in a town, from “for sale” signs on private lawns to political signs to commercial signs advertising businesses. In Wilton, this latter issue is ripe for greater consideration.
Wilton’s zoning regulations devote several pages to signs. Most of them are devoted to safety features, such as not interfering with vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Other regulations affect aesthetics, such as those that prohibit flashing or moving lights or signs that rotate or move in any way. Billboards also are prohibited. Regulations also take into consideration size, material, placement, etc.
