Civic & Non-Profit Banner Reservations

Banner sign support structures were constructed by the City to enable civic or non-profit organizations, or organizers of events for which a Special Event permit has been approved by the City's Recreation Services Section, to appropriately advertise their events. Banners advertising these events may only be placed on these support structures. Any banner placed on fences, walls, or other structures anywhere else in the City will be removed by City code compliance staff. The Civic/Non-Profit Banner Structures are addressed in Table 10-50.100.090.D of the Sign Standards, which can be downloaded from the 'Downloading the Zoning Code' webpage.

How do I make a reservation?
