The Town of Franklin is requesting the cooperation of local business owners, as we partner with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to remove signs located within the public rights-ofway throughout the Municipality and Extra Territorial Jurisdiction of the Town of Franklin. These signs are prohibited by State Law in G.S. 136-32, which specifically states that all violators of the aforementioned section shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. Furthermore, these signs are prohibited locally in Chapter 155 Section 10 of the Town of Franklin’s Unified Development Ordinance.
In light of this, the Town of Franklin in conjuction with the North Carolina Department of Transportaion will be removing all temporary signs and objects from the public rights-of-way during the week of June 18, 2012.
