The Township of Jackson last night proposed a law, to force home owners to obtain permits before putting up a “For Sale” sign an their property.
This strange ordinance would only apply to “For Sale” signs, all other signs will be permitted.
Baruch Kaluszyner and Jacob Steinberg spearheaded the efforts to cancel this ordinance.
Many Frum real estate agents showed up as Township officials said if people show up and oppose, they will cancel the ordinance. Bryan Hutchinson, CEO of the Monmouth MLS spoke passionately against this law ( See minute 53:00). Bryan said this is unconstitutional and the supreme court already ruled on this matter. Placing a sign on your property, relaying to others your wish to sell your home, is the greatest form of free speech.
The ordinance was tabled for the time being.
