  • Are there set back requirements? Minimum distance from the roadway or sidewalk?
  • Is internal illumination allowed? Is external illumination allowed?
  • Are you allowed an LED Moving Message Sign? Can it move and scroll, or must it stay static?

  • Can you have more than one sign?
  • Are engineer sealed prints required? Can they be a copy? Do they have to be sealed by an engineer in your state?
