About the Permit
The city permits the use of temporary signs for special events, sales, and promotions. Temporary signs include banners, pennants, flags, a-frame signs, and the like.
The city does not allow the display of these types of signs for continuous marketing efforts. Temporary signs require the issuance of a Temporary Sign Permit from the Planning Division.
