Identifying Your Business
If you are changing the dimensions of your sign or replacing an existing sign with a new sign or new type of sign (e.g., from regular to LED), you will need to submit a Sign Permit Application
to the Planning Department
Banners are typically prohibited signs in Callaway, but are permitted at the opening of a new business or for promotional events - provided that they are removed after 14 days.
Temporary signs - which are designed, constructed, and intended to be used on a short-term basis not exceeding 12 months (unless an extension has been approved by the Planning Department) - are allowed in the city without a permit. Temporary signs, however, must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Signs indicating that a property is for sale or rent in a residentially-zoned area may not exceed 6 square feet, or 32 square feet in a commercially-zoned area.
- Signs in conjunction with a construction / land development project may not exceed 32 square feet. These signs may include information such as maps, diagrams, and other project information.
- Temporary window signs conforming to the provisions of the City's Sign Ordinance are also allowed.
For further information on business sign regulations, contact the Planning Department at (850) 871-4672.
