Limited Duration Sign Permit Application Process
For Limited duration signs: A completed application and the following information must be submitted to Department of Permitting Services for review: a drawing of the area showing the proposed location of the sign in relation to nearby buildings and streets; a scaled drawing of the sign; and written permission of the property owner, if the sign is erected on private property.

For permanent signs: Sign permit applications are reviewed by DPS zoning staff. This review takes approximately ten days. After staff approval, a sign permit is issued along with a sign tag which is to be attached to the sign itself.

The following information is necessary to process the permit application: size (area) and dimension of the sign, location of the sign on the property or building (site plan required), copy of the sign text, photographs of the property indicating where the sign is to be located. Separate fees are due for each sign type. Please refer to the links below for additional information.

Online users who have additional questions and would like to be contacted by a departmental staff member may submit a request by clicking on the Create Service Request button below. Please complete all of the fields in the Contact Information section, provide the property address in the Service/Incident Address information section and provide a brief description of the request in the Brief Description field.
