Signs of Change

 

Chicago Sign Permit Update!

A recently passed City of Chicago ordinance provides additional guidance on sign permit requirements. These updates to the city code are a big step in the right direction for small business owners, brought to pass because of the efforts of this coalition. For details please see the Department of Building’s Guide to On-premise Signs.
