The types of signs that are inspected include:

  • structural (permanent) free-standing signs
  • neon signs
  • canopy signs
  • air supported signs
  • structural components of signs and methods of attachment
  • electrical connections
  • placement where signs project on private/public property

Inspections for mobile signs, banners, and signs painted on buildings, structures, or equipment, are conducted by Zoning Field Officers.
