Sign Regulations


The City of Portland has kicked off the rewriting of its sign regulations. Though sign
regulations have been amended numerous times, they have not been rewritten in many
years. New sign regulations will:

  • Be reorganized for improved clarity
  • Include illustrative graphics
  • Be evaluated for consistency with current state and federal case law
  • Reflect different aesthetic, dimensional, and materials needs of different property types, geographies and historic districts
