Sign Permit Requirements
The Mayor and Council find that signs provide an important medium through which individuals may convey a variety of messages. To avoid the potential of negative impacts of signage on public safety, public welfare, and property values, the City regulates location, size, placement, and certain features of signs. These regulations are intended to enable the public to identify businesses and locate goods and services in the City without difficulty or confusion in a manner, which improves the general attractiveness of the community and protect property values.
A sign permit is required for:
- Permanent signs such as wall, monument, stanchion, billboard, or lighted signs at or on an establishment
- Temporary signs such as those that promote a business or event, advertise a vacancy, or provide information on new development at a construction site. The signs must be removed after a set period of time
Applications for permanent signs may be submitted via the online portal. Temporary sign permit applications may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the submission has been processed, you will receive an email with a link to online payment. See the fee schedule for more information on temporary and permanent sign costs.
