SIGN PERMIT PROCESSING

Sign permits are typically required for ALL outdoor signs.

  • Sign Permit process
    • Zoning application
      • The zoning department from your city or township determines the maximum area / size for your sign including any setbacks required from the right of way.  Each city or township will have different requirements for the zoning ordinance.
    • Building application / permits
      • The building department from your city, county, or state examines the required building plan and site plan to check if the installation method, material & structures complies with the OBC (Ohio Building Code) as well as the NEC (National Electric Code).
    • Electric permit application (For lighted signs)
      • Depends on the local jurisdictions, contracted electric inspection company may oversee the electric portion of the permit separately.  Typically, it requires additional electric permit and separate inspection fee.
    • Final inspection
      • Depending on how the local jurisdiction zoning & building departments are set up, final inspections are scheduled by each department to check the size requirements, building compliance, and electrical compliance for lighted electric signs.
