All attached signs combined (new and existing) are limited to eight words over four-inches tall per facade, per occupant.In general, a detached sign means any sign connected to the ground that is not an attached, portable, or vehicular sign. This includes signs mounted on retaining walls and/or fences.
TEMPORARY SIGNS IN THE GENERAL ZONING DISTRICTS:
In general, we do not allow temporary signs, so we are unable to issue permits for them. We can issue permits for signs provided for by the zoning requirements for that area.Any sign/s meeting this definition are prohibited in the general zoning districts:SPECIAL PURPOSE SIGN means a sign temporarily supplementing the permanent signs on a premise.
Special Purpose Signs in the general zoning (business & non-business) districts were prohibited by intentionally removing all the requirements for these types of signs. Otherwise, signs follow the regulations outlined for that district provided in the charts and links below.Some Special Provision Sign Districts (SPSD)s have provisions for Special Purpose Signs. Our Zoning Map is available to determine the zoning for a specific site. Each SPSD will have a tabbed portion for sites located in the SPSD when the property is selected.
