We issue sign permits for a variety of sign types like: awnings, building-mounted, blade, free-standing, illuminated, and monument. Learn more about sign requirements by zone.

We're aiming for 100% paperless permitting in 2019!
We offer 24/7 online permitting services at MyBuildingPermit.com. You can apply online, check permit status and request inspections. All building, fire, utilities, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sign, right of way, wireless and clearing & grading permit applications must be submitted online at MyBuildingPermit.com. Paper applications and plans for these permit types are no longer accepted. Land use and shoreline permit applications will go online later this year.
