Chapter 78 - Article V
The City of Brentwood does not have a sign permit. Instead a sign approval letter is issued specifying the approved sign and conditions of approval. Sign parameters vary depending on the overlying zoning classification. If you are unsure of the zoning, please refer to the City GIS Zoning Map. The legend is in the bottom middle of the page in a blue circle.
A permit is not required to display a temporary sign, but the sign ordinance does limit size, height, location, and duration of display.
- Signs should not be placed within the public right-of-way (ROW), meaning that area between the street pavement and the property liens of adjacent lots.
- All temporary signs shall be placed a minimum distance of 10 feet from the back of the curb, the edge of pavement, or the stabilized shoulder or a sufficient distance to ensure they are out of the ROW
- Signs at intersections shall be placed to ensure they are outside of the required sight distance triangle.
