The purpose of the sign code is to:
Approve the installation, construction, alteration, and repair of business signage to protect the safety, property, and welfare of the public; to improve the neat, clean, orderly, and attractive appearance of the community
Improve the effectiveness of signs to identify and advertise businesses
Eliminate signs that demand, rather than invite, public attention
The goals are accomplished by reviewing, approving, and issuing permits for permanent and temporary signage, educating the public on sign code requirements, and investigating specific violations where illegal signs are erected with or without permit.
