Guam – The Guam Visitor’s Bureau is asking all businesses in the Tumon Tourist District to take down their vinyl signs on public property.
The signs have sprouted up, strung between trees, or posted on fences down in Tumon.
The letter notes that “over the past years, GVB has seen a proliferation of illegal and unsightly vinyl banner signs, specifically along San Vitores Road and Governor Carlos Camacho Road.”
And GVB has “also received numerous complaints from residents, business owners and GVB members … the calls and complaints have increased to the point where we can no longer ignore them,” states the letter.
GVB Assistant General Manager Nathan DeNight says they are asking the businesses to voluntarily co-operate and take the signs down.
The letter from GVB warns that failure to comply in the coming weeks will result in the physical removal of the signs by the Department of Public works and “individuals and entities with signs located on private property that are not in compliance of the law will be suject to DPW enforcement action.”
