What are the application requirements for a sign permit?

As part of the application process, applicants must submit supplementary materials. The required documentation will include scale drawings; elevations of the proposed signs, a site plan with the signs’ locations, and building elevations.

Signs are reviewed under standards for the zoning district of the property where the sign will be posted or built. Each zoning district has different restrictions and regulations regarding the allowed number of each type of sign, as well as size, height, and illumination. (20.75.050--20.75.060)

When planning any sign, applicants will have to calculate the sign area. Separate measuring rules apply to each type of sign (i.e. ground, wall, etc.) See 20.75.170 for information on measurement rules and how to calculate the area of a sign.
