When is a temporary sign permit required?
Any time a temporary sign (32 square feet or less) is displayed on the property. Banner signs placed on a building or canopy are exempt from permitting but may be up for no more than 30 days each calendar year. A temporary or portable sign intended to be seen from the public street is described as an advertising sign used on an interim basis for special business sales, new business openings, special events, goods, products, services, or facilities located on a premise. One temporary sign is allowed for up to 30 days each calendar year. You must obtain a temporary sign permit from the Planning Division. An exception to the temporary sign permit requirement is the advertisement for non-profit organization events or fundraising. Signs which advertise property for sale, lease or rent also do not require a temporary sign permit.
