Sign Permits

Sign permits are required before:

  • the placement of any new sign.
  • relocation of an existing sign.
  • remodeling of any sign.

Sign permits are not required for:

  • Some signs that are very small in size, have a limited time duration, limited aesthetic impact and strong community interest in identifying land uses, or locations and historic structures. See Section 10.6 for a complete list of signs that do not require a permit.
  • Signs where only the content of an existing sign is changing.

See Section 10.13 of the Land Use Code for details on sign permits. Sign permits are processed like building permits. Click on the titles in the boxes below for the procedural guides and forms. Sign permit applications and procedural guides are also available at the Larimer County Planning and Building Department (3rd floor of the Larimer County Courthouse Offices Building at 200 W. Oak Street in Fort Collins).
