no bandit signs
Councilmembers Jannie Blackwell and Curtis Jones have introduced Council Bill 120017 for the legalization of bandit signs in Philadelphia. These are the signs proclaiming “We Buy Houses” or “Quick Cash” posted on utility poles, telephone poles, and even trees. Under the proposed rule, bandit sign erectors can apply for a $1 stamp from L&I for each sign erected. Then when signs are removed, they receive a $0.50 refund. This measure is “supposed to generate revenue,” but if you take the ~20,000 some-odd signs in Philadelphia now, the revenue generated only be $20,000 a year, not enough money to even pay for one City employee to administer the program on a part-time basis. The bill got its introduction to City Council and is now sitting at the Licenses and Inspections committee. This committee only met three times last year, and there’s no set agenda date for when the next one will be.

The board members of EPX unanimously oppose Bill 120017 as we believe these signs are a blight on the neighborhood. If you agree, we urge you to sign the electronic petition and share it with your family, friends and neighbors.
