A business may have banners installed on the exterior wall of their store or tenant space or on the private property of the development, for a total of 120 days per calendar year. The 120 days may be used all at once or divided out into four 30 consecutive day increments.
You may obtain one permit for the whole calendar year for $50 or a permit for each time frame at $50 each.
Sizes allowed are:
- 60 square feet maximum for a banner hung on the wall of a building. Top of banner is not to exceed the roofline of the building.
- 16 square feet maximum for a freestanding banner. Top of banner is not to exceed four (4) feet from grade. The banner must be attached to a solid perimeter frame in such a manner that the banner is taut and does not fold over.
Please note: The code allows one (1) freestanding sign per street frontage and/or one (1) wall sign. (Tip: This means you may have two banners installed at the same time but one must be on the wall and the other must be freestanding. Two banners displayed at once counts as two of the 30 day use allowances.)
Location: We will need a site plan showing the location of the banner. The banner must be on private property. Staff can print a map of your business location if needed.
Banners shall not be hung from another sign structure, landscaping, utility pole, or similar structure. Banner appearance and maintenance.
