“For Sale” signs will vanish from New Canaan for half a year starting on July 1 as part of a trial ban, according to the Stamford Daily Voice. Realtor associations in the area agreed to the experiment because many consider the signs eyesores that “can reduce a neighborhood’s beauty and appeal,” according to the outlet. The president of the New Canaan Board of Realtors, Janis Hennessey, noted that prospective buyers already search for homes online, and that other towns have benefitted from a lack of lawn signs. [Stamford Daily Voice]
