Your sign permit application will be assigned a permit number. Within three days of permit application acceptance, you will receive a commitment date for review. The commitment date is when you can expect a permit approval or notification that additional information is needed. You may also review a permit’s progress through the City’s permit tracking system using the permit number, the street address, or your business name.
