All business signs (including building identification signage, window signage, banners and even sign re-facing) require the review and approval by the Planning Division and may also require a building permit. Since sign regulations vary by zone and by shopping center, it is best to contact the Planning Division and provide your business address as well as a description of the proposed sign.
Please note that window signage, banners and other promotional signage is not allowed in any of the City's industrial or residential-zoned properties.
To verify the Zoning and General Plan designation of your property, please contact the Planning Division at (562) 801-4332.
A Zoning Map is available for your review at the public counter during business hours. If you need a map for your business or for research purposes, you can purchase one for a fee at City Hall or you can view the map online by visiting the Planning Division's page and selecting 'Zoning Map' from the side-navigation menu.
The City may have a copy of a general site plan for your property within its address files; however in most cases there is no detailed site plan or floor plan. It is best to call or visit the public counter and review the address file.
