Light up the whole front of your business.
You can showcase your logo, lighting up the whole front of your building with commercial awnings. You cannot go wrong with an illuminated awning when it comes to standing out from the crowd.

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.
