What is a permanent sign?
Any sign that will be erected for more than 6 weeks per calendar year that is meant for viewing by the general public (not internal signs) is considered a permanent sign. All permanent signs must be reviewed by the Sign Review Board. Regulations for permanent signs depend on the zoning district the property is located in.

If a sign is reviewed by the Sign Review Board and is denied for any reason the applicant can file an appeal within 10 days of the Sign Review Board’s ruling. Once an appeal is filed, the Sign Appeals Board will hear the applicant’s request for a variance. To receive a variance the applicant must show that they will suffer a hardship if the sign they are proposing is not permitted.
