Materials used to create signs

Your local sign manufacturer will have a variety of options available, but for environmental reasons we recommend corrugated plastic because it can be recycled.

Corrugated plastic is sold under many trade-names. It is an extruded twin wall plastic-sheet product produced from high-impact polypropylene resin with a similar make-up to corrugated cardboard and is ideally suited for outdoor signage. It can be direct printed or will accept pressure sensitive adhesive graphics.

Location to post signs

The sign must be placed on each street frontage of the site, within 10 feet of the street lot line, and must be visible to pedestrians and motorists. It should be posted on the site; not in the adjacent public right-of-way. One sign must be posted for every 600 feet of street frontage or fraction thereof. Signs are not required along unimproved street frontages that do not allow motor vehicle access.

Installation of signs

Signs may be attached to an existing building or structure, or mounted on T-bars, 4 x 4 posts, a fence or other reasonable structure that is fully accessible to the public.

Mounting height for signs 

To ensure that your sign is displayed at the correct height, the top of the sign when mounted should be 72" inches above grade and free from any obstruction. The bottom of the sign must be 24” above the ground.
