Are you ready to do a Sign Survey and need a little help? Whether you've purchased signs before, or if a new sign purchase is in your future, please use the following checklist as a guide through the many-step process of updating, selecting or producing a new sign:

Step #1: Visit or call your local Town Planning and Zoning Administrator and ask the following questions:

What is the maximum size allowed for outdoor signs and how do you determine square footage allowances?

*What is the maximum height above ground allowed?

*What are your set-back limitations?

*What are your illumination options for internal & external signage?

*Logo and Design services?

*Main ID signs?

*Building signs?

*Directional and/or A.D.A. compliant signs?
