Sign Permit Applications and Regulations

Sign Permits

In order to place a new sign, or replace the face of an existing sign, a sign permit is required prior to installation. Below are links to application forms for the most common types of signs. They can be downloaded, completed, and returned to the City’s Planning and Development Department, with the accompanying fee payment.  The fee is $0.15 per square foot or $20, whichever is greater.
