A Land Use Permit is needed for any new buildings, additions, or alterations to existing buildings. Most signs require permits. It is recommended that you verify with the Zoning Department prior to any projects, he will be happy to assist applicants with their requests and explain the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance.
