The City has determined that the individual user’s right to convey a message must be balanced with the public’s right to be free of signs which unreasonably complete, distract drivers and pedestrians and produce confusion as determined by the Zoning Administrator. It is the City’s intent to provide business and industry in the municipality with equitable sign standards in accordance with fair competition and aesthetic standards acceptable to the community; to provide the public with a safe and effective means of locating businesses, services and points of interest within the municipality; and to provide for a safe vehicular and pedestrian traffic environment.
Permanent signs include: ground signs, monument signs, freestanding signs, pole signs, wall signs, window signs, awning signs, projecting signs and illuminating signs. In addition to the permanent sign permit application, a commercial and industrial building permit application is required for all permanent signage with the exception of face replacements and signs under 6’ tall.
