Permanent Signage Requests for Residential and Commercial Properties

Previously, the Architectural Review Board (ARB) was responsible for reviewing and approving all signage requests within the Town of Occoquan during their monthly meeting.  On November 1, 2016, the Town Council adopted a revised sign ordinance that now requires signage be reviewed by the Town’s Zoning Administrator or designee.  As a result, the ARB does not review signage requests; however, the ARB still provides guidance on color, location, size, and material of signage within the historic district through the Board’s Guidelines. The Guidelines should be referenced by all applicants and all applications will be reviewed for compliance with the guidelines and Section 157.335 of the Town Code.

Temporary Banner Requests
Temporary Banner permits are issued by the Town Manager. Complete the application and submit to the Town Manager at Town Hall or by e-mail.  Temporary banners may be displayed for 20 consecutive days and each property is permitted to display a banner up to two times per calendar year. Please include a photo of the location of the temporary banner and a mock up in color of the proposed banner along with your application.
