Sign Code


Our Sign Code, part of our Land Use (Zoning) Code, regulates most of the following:

  • Awnings
  • Billboards
  • Community Bulletin Boards
  • Kiosks
  • Permanent Signs
  • Temporary Signs

We regulate signs based on the zoning of the property where the sign is located. Sign regulations are different in various zones, so a sign used in one zone may not be allowed in a different zone.

Our Sign Code

  • Defines on to premise and off-premise signs
  • Describes the type, size, and of quantity signs that are allowed in each zone
  • Describes what types signs are not allowed
  • Explains where signs can be placed
  • Gives specific rules for signs on private property, for signs that project over or into the public rights-of-way, and for signs near intersections or driveways
  • Gives specific sign rules for each zone

Marijuana & Alcohol Businesses

Marijuana and alcohol businesses must also comply with Liquor and Cannabis Board sign regulations specific to each industry.
