Sign Off Day Targets Illegal Signs along Hillsborough Roads

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 20, 2021) - Code Enforcement officers from Hillsborough County and the cities of Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City will join forces on Thursday, Oct. 21 to rid the streets of illegal signs.

The cooperative effort, dubbed Sign Off Day Tampa Bay and coinciding with National Code Enforcement Month, targets unauthorized snipe signs and advertising on utility poles, medians, parkways, and other rights of way. Code enforcement officers will work within their respective jurisdictions to remove the signs.

The signs, which advertise everything from moving services to houses for sale to tree services, tend to pop up on the weekend, often near busy intersections or on well-traveled roads. Local ordinances prohibit the signs on public property without a valid permit. Collected signs will be recycled or destroyed.

Sign off Day Tampa Bay will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude by noon. Collected signs will be dropped off beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Hillsborough Heights Solid Waste Facility and Community Collection Center, 6209 County Road 579, Seffner, FL 33584.
