A. Window signs do not require a permit, however window displays shall not cover more than 50 percent of the window area.  When submitting an application for a wall sign permit, we ask that the applicant also submit renderings of any proposed window signage, as window sign square footage is included in the total allowable wall sign area.

Q. Do you require permits for sign face replacements?


A. Changing a face does require a sign permit, as the sign erected is a new sign.
