Are temporary signs or banner signs permitted in the City?
Signage is controlled by the specific district of a site and requires approval and issuance of a sign permit before installation. Portable signs are not permitted. In some cases temporary banner signs can be used as long as they meet all required standards. Temporary banners or signs for businesses require written approval from the Director of Planning and Zoning.
