A permit is required for all new signs and replacement of or modifications to existing signs. Signage allowed depends on the zoning of the property. Properties are zoned under the Land Development Code and sign regulations are governed based upon Article 6, Signs and Lighting. Check your zoning.
Sign Permit fees are based upon the valuation of the sign (minimum review fee of $50). The City collects City and County Use Tax on the building and construction materials at time of permit issuance. Please follow the instructions listed on the application. Permits are processed in approximately five business days.
Sign Permit Application
With some exceptions, banners, flags, sidewalk signs and other similar devices may be permitted as a temporary sign through an approved Temporary Sign Permit.
