Williamstown to Look at Updating Bylaw on Political Signs

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff

The ballot return box on the steps of Town Hall is bolted to the porch.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town is asking the Sign Commission to take a look at an out-of-date bylaw that addresses political signs.
The issue came up recently when residents asked questions about candidates signs and "issues" signs on town-owned property, like the town green, which runs along both sides of Main Street (Route 2) from the curb to the sidewalk from Field Park east to Cole Avenue.
Those inquiries prompted a look at the bylaw, which, Town Manager Jason Hoch told the Select Board last Wednesday, addresses such signage on private parcels but is mute about similar displays on municipal property.
"Where we are at the moment is a need to refer back to the Sign Commission to refresh some of the bylaw in this area to get some clarity around what should be there, what we'd like to see there, what shouldn't be there, and do we want to identify certain public properties for a free-for-all for signs, no signs?" Hoch said. "Picking and choosing is obviously a problem."
