They are not allowed in single-family residential zones. In multi-family residential zones and commercial zones, there must be one sign not to exceed one square foot in area.
Business Identification Signs During Construction Remodels
When a business remains open while remodeling its premises, and a construction barricade is required, one large business identification sign may be placed on the construction barricade adjacent to the entrance to the business.
This sign, not to exceed 12 square feet in area, may contain only the business name, a company logo, and the fact that the business is remaining open during the remodel. A new business on the site may also include the opening date of the business.
If a large business identification sign contains an advertisement for a new business, no real estate sign shall be allowed in front of the building, lot or parcel, or placed on the construction barricade.
In addition to the one permitted large business identification sign, small additional business identification signs are also permitted under the following conditions:
One sign may be placed on each side of the construction barricade, perpendicular to the street façade, facing a sidewalk or other pedestrian access through the barricade.
The signs may state only the name of the business and the fact that it is open for business during the remodeling.
These signs shall not exceed two square feet in area.
