City of Colorado Springs / Land Use Review / Signs

Sign Information and Permits

The City adopted a revision to the Sign code provisions for private property in April of 2012 incorporating up-to-date sign technology and marketing practices while promoting a visually attractive and safer environment for our community. Significant changes to the code include the addition of Coordinated Sign Plans (CSP) for commercial centers and Electronic Message Centers (EMC). Applications and permits for signs on private property are handled by staff at the Development Review Enterprise. A sign application must be submitted when applying for a new sign; if the new sign is an EMC, the EMC compliance form must also submitted with the appropriate authorization.

For questions, more information or to schedule a pre-application meeting, contact Kurt Schmitt at (719) 385-5072 or at kschmitt@springsgov.com.

No sign may be placed within public right-of-way without first obtaining a revocable permit. Depending on the type and size of a particular sign, a revocable permit may or may not be possible. To download a revocable permit application, click here. For questions, more information or to schedule a meeting, contact Sue Matz at (719) 385-5355 or at smatz@springsgov.com.

The following documents and applications pertain to signs on private property. Note: To open the applications and documents, you must have Adobe Reader X or newer to view and print the documentation:
