Sign Applications & PermitsWhat are Applications & Permits?

Just because you own or rent a property in the Los Angeles area of California does not mean you have carte blanche to install any sign you want on that property. Many signs, typically large outdoor signs, require permission from a municipal government to be installed. Sometimes light-pollution ordinances can affect lighted commercial signs, too.

Why Apply for a Sign Permit?

There are various laws and bylaws that regulate the types and sizes of signs that can be installed throughout the Los Angeles area. Some of these are in place for reasons of safety, to protect property values, for environmental reasons, or to nurture neighborhood harmony. Tall signs can cast unwanted shadows on neighboring properties, bright signs can cause visibility issues, large signs can interfere with power lines above or water pipes below, etc.

Types of Applications & Permits

It’s important to remember that jurisdictions have require different permits for different signs. The sign application process in Santa Monica might be totally different than the process in East Los Angeles.
