One Harmony on the Lakes resident said a group of neighborhood “vigilantes” will take matters into their own hands if the City of Holly Springs does not remove the more than 20 builder signs from the right of way.
Roger McIver, who originally requested that the city begin enforcing its sign ordinance at the Nov. 4 City Council meeting, came before the Holly Springs Planning and Zoning Commission Nov. 21 to again make his plea.
McIver said in the time it takes him to get from Hickory Road to his home (about a mile), he passes 29 builder signs and added that a majority of those signs are in the right of way and prohibited by the city’s ordinance.
According to Section 74-6 in Article I of the city’s code, it “shall be unlawful for any person to erect, place or maintain within the right of way of any public road any sign, signal, or other device except as authorized by subsection (d) of this section or as required or authorized by O.C.G.A. § 32-6-50 or any other state or city law.”
