Permanent Signage

Mary's Pizza SignAs you develop your plans for new or modified signage, talk with Planning Department staff, who can outline the requirements and review process that apply to your business. Staff can assist with your application and can work with you to approve temporary signage that you can use while your application is in the review process.

Examples of types of permanent signs that can be approved at the staff level include wall signs of no more than 10 square feet in the area; hanging (or “blade”) signs with less than 6 square feet per side; and permanent window signs that cover up to 10% of the window area.

However, unless you are a very large business, approval of the Design Review and Historic Preservation Commission will be required to have more than two permanent signs for your business.
