This chapter passed by order of the Verona Town Board, as elected and informed by the citizens of Verona, is enacted to preserve, protect, promote and advance the public health, safety and welfare of the Town by regulating and establishing standards for the construction and maintenance of signs. The Town Board has found that the location, height, size, construction and design of signage within the Town of Verona has a direct impact on the well-being of Town citizens and of the ability of those citizens to advertise and communicate within this community. Although the Town Board encourages and holds sacred the right of Verona's citizens to make use of their property to advertise or otherwise communicate, this right must be balanced with the Town's duty to its citizens to promote peace and quiet enjoyment within this Town. Accordingly, the sections that follow will maintain balance between a citizen's ability to advertise or otherwise communicate, and the dangers, distractions, obstructions and nuisances that improper signage may cause to the health, welfare, safety and enjoyment of natural and scenic beauty within the Town of Verona.
