Sign Permit

The Village of Burr Ridge Sign Ordinance regulates all signs in the Village.  Although certain types of signs are exempt from obtaining a permit, all signs are subject to the regulations contained in the Sign Ordinance.  Directional signs, real estate signs, and retail window signs are examples of signs regulated by the Sign Ordinance but that do not require a sign permit.  All principal identification signs (permanent signs that are intended to announce the principal activity conducted on a property) are also subject to the regulations of the Sign Ordinance AND also require issuance of a sign permit before erection of the sign.

Please review the Sign Ordinance for more information about sign regulations. The Sign Ordinance is organized by District so you will need to know the zoning (click Zoning Map) of your property before determining the applicable sign regulations.
