I haved moved into a business that has an existing sign and I want to change it; do I need a permit?
Section 4.1.3 This by-law shall apply to all signs and other advertising devices within the limits of the Town except as otherwise provided in this by-law. The addition, alteration, or change of the advertising message on a sign face is classified as a new sign, under new tenant occupancy, or ownership, and therefore requires a sign permit.
What if I’m just changing the lens face of my existing business sign?
You are not required to have a permit, but you will need approval from the Chief Building Official or designate for the sign messaging.

Section 8.2.7 Details the rules for portable signs and the process to apply for the permit is documented in Section 9.2.
