In an effort to strike a balance amongst business owners advertising their business and complying with the City’s Municipal Code, the City Council approved an interim six-month period between March 1 and August 31, 2018, allowing for the placement of outdoor signage and displays subject to specific guidelines. Portable signs and outdoor displays are subject to administrative approval by the Community Development Director. One A-frame sign per business not to exceed six square feet would be allowed as long as it is consistent with the architectural attributes of the building in which the business is located. Outdoor displays are permitted, provided that they are limited to an area of 18 square feet and inclusive of no more than five items also related to the type of business. All signage and displays are limited to private property only. A Temporary Outdoor Display/Sign Permit application may be submitted to the Community Development Department along with a drawing or photograph of the proposed signage or outdoor display for review. No fee will be required during this six-month interim period.
