Temporary Signs: If you are opening a business and need signage sooner, apply for a temporary sign permit. It takes only a few days to get a permit for a temporary sign if the right information is submitted with the application (use the standard sign permit application). Temporary signs are good for 14 days, can be as large as 16 square feet, and must be printed or legibly lettered on rigid sign board or fabric banner. The temporary sign must be placed so that it does not affect vehicular or pedestrian traffic. A business is allowed one temporary sign three times per year.
If you have any questions, please contact the Staff Planner:
