SGIA is your resource for finding sign codes and zoning rule information. Understanding sign codes and the associated requirements for your market area helps you, and ultimately your customers, avoid costly delays in sign installations or the loss of revenue from a prohibited sign.
Sign codes can vary by state, county and local municipalities. Occasionally these codes can change for a number of reasons including community influences, new sign types being introduced onto the market, or the need to control the numbers of signs for a particular area. Knowing how to navigate the sign codes and educating the industry on what and where to look for information is just one way SGIA is supporting the sign community.
SGIA continues to work on your behalf to collect relevant information on sign code issues and activities. Contact Marci Kinter at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
In general, a sign is defined as an attention-getting device which can display several elements such as words, symbols, insignias, trademarks, colors, moving parts, lights, directional information, or inflatable’s, which promotes an advertisement or announcement or which directs attention to an object, product, place, activity, person, institution, organization or business.
Every municipality will have some form of regulation or rules that apply to the installation, use or activities associated with signs. Depending on the area there can also be specific rules on which signs require a permit and which ones don’t.
Sign codes, rules and regulations can vary by state, county, and local municipalities. Those who produce and/or install signs should be familiar with and understand the sign codes for the area(s) they serve to ensure that a sign produced will meets the applicable regulatory requirements.
