Sign Permit Information

The city recognizes that signs are a necessary means of visual communication for businesses to identify themselves. The municipal code intends to provide a reasonable balance between the right of an individual business and the right of the public to be protected against the visual discord that results from the unrestricted proliferation of signs. Please see Section 26-21 of the municipal code for the complete sign regulations.
