From Harford County government:
Illegal signs, whether posted by businesses, individuals, neighborhood associations, or non-profit organizations, are a blight on the community and can pose serious traffic safety concerns. As a result of numerous complaints from citizens about the proliferation of illegal roadside signs, Harford County is planning to implement a Volunteer Sign Removal Program administered by the Department of Planning and Zoning which is being established to provide an opportunity for community spirited individuals, businesses, organizations and groups to enhance Harford County neighborhoods and improve roadside safety by removing signs that are illegally placed along state and county roadways.
The new Harford County Volunteer Illegal Sign Removal Program will be announced by Harford County Executive David Craig and Planning and Zoning Director Pete Gutwald during a press conference Tuesday at 3 p.m. in the Harford Mall parking lot facing Route 24.
