Elevate Your Building’s Curb Appeal
When visitors arrive, you want your building to have a great first impression. Add a canopy to your building’s entrance to elevate its curb appeal.

A sign bylaw and sign permit process are intended to ensure businesses have equal and fair opportunities to advertise and promote while preserving the aesthetics of the community. A sign permit is required prior to a sign being constructed, moved, altered, placed or repaired in City limits.
A sign permit is required prior to any new signage; or alteration, or relocation of existing signage. The permit fee for new business signs located on a building (wall sign) is waived if you apply for it within 2 weeks of receiving Business License approval.
To obtain a sign permit, applicants need to submit an application with the requested drawings and appropriate fees to the Development Services Department at City Hall.
