Sign Permit Forms and Information
**NEW** May 26, 2021: Sealed engineering drawings are required for most Sign Permit Applications. Exceptions may include flags, banners, or signs without a foundation. Exceptions may be granted at the City’s sole discretion.
After a sign is installed, the Sign Contractor must submit a signed letter, in preapproved format, to the City. The letter must certify construction and installation complies with permit documents and all applicable Codes and Ordinances. The City will provide the preapproved format with approved sign permit documents.
The above policy replaces the requirement that a Special Inspector certify sign construction and installation.
