Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance


A public hearing will be held with the Depoe Bay Planning Commission on May 10, 2017 to review the proposed Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance.  The public is encouraged to attend the public hearing and provide input on the draft ordinance.

The proposed Depoe Bay Sign Ordinance combines existing sign regulations into one document and is a significant update to current sign regulations.  The proposed sign ordinance would make some sign regulations more restrictive, e.g. limits sign coverage to a maximum 20% of a building façade and prohibits roof signs.  The proposed sign ordinance relaxes some sign regulations, e.g. currently A-Frame (sandwich board) signs are prohibited and the proposed sign ordinance would allow A-Frame signs.  The sign ordinance is proposed to be incorporated into the Depoe Bay Zoning Ordinance.
