- Removing the illegal signs? What does that do?
Better address the need that triggers the signage.
There is a great need for small business to get their word out and to be able to to let the neighborhood know that they are there so products and services can be purchased between the city as much is possible to improve/preserve its economy.
Treating with the removal of signs will cause extra expense on the city, and more likely not avoid the problem. Instead, the city should establish neighborhood bill boards where business can advertised in an orderly, clean and "stetically" approved manner. An add that can be seen in an non marketing invasive way, such as a stop light, bus stop and so forth would benefit everyone.
This way there will be an increase of revenue, and a support from the city to encourage micro business and tax revenue.
Just culture applies everywhere, address the cause, minimize the incident rate and be more productive.
