Regulations Governing Billboards and Signs


Get permission for your sign before you post it.

Just because it’s your land doesn’t mean that you can put up a sign wherever you want. Do your due diligence prior to committing to any parcel. Many municipalities have a general sign permit application if no variances are requested and a site plan is not being submitted.  Most municipalities will have ordinances regulating sign area and content, which prohibits signs advertising a product or business conducted other than on the premises where the sign is erected or establishes maximum height or area for a sign. This video reviews signs as part of a site plan application, special considerations, and the objector’s view to a billboard or sign application.
