Vancouver eyes charges as deadline missed
The City of Vancouver wants this sign removed. (JEREMY NUTTALL)
A development at Broadway and Kingsway in Vancouver has been referred for bylaw infraction charges after missing a deadline to remove a large sign advertising condos to be built on the property.
The Independent, being built by Rize, had until July 31 to remove a large sign on the lot and one on both sides of a building there advertising the condo development.
The deadline has passed and now the City of Vancouver said it has referred the matter for possible charges.
Residents in Mount Pleasant have complained about the sign.
According to Vancouver bylaws the company could be fined anywhere from $250 to $10,000 if found guilty.
The city said such infractions would not affect any applications for development permits.
Rize did not return a request for comment.
