Plan Review Process

Bureau staff will check the proposed sign or awning for consistency with sign code standards applicable to the zoning and use of the proposed sign location. Staff will also determine if additional reviews are needed for compliance with land use standards (e.g. adjustment or design review) or structural standards.

When the proposed sign or awning has been determined to meet all requirements, fees are due and the permit or registration will be issued. Portable signs do not require a review process; application and fees should be submitted together.
When the proposal requires a construction standard alternate review, engineering review or additional land use review, these reviews must be complete before the permit will be issued. Please allow additional time for these reviews.
For more information on these additional reviews, refer to pages 4-6 of the sign permits and awnings program guide.
