Changes made recently to the Kensington town sign ordinance mean the pole sign at Mizell Lumber & Hardware Company will have to be taken down within five years. The new ordinance allows the town to request the removal of signs more than 20 years old, and pole signs are already illegal. Co-owner Jeannine Mizell said the ordinances are a burden on businesses, especially in the down economy.
