Sign Inspection

The Inspections & Code Department is the record keeping arm for all signage and billboards in the City of Columbus. All signs are required to be permitted and approved prior to installation. Please see the Permit & Forms tab for the application and cost for types of sign.

Inspections & Code is also the enforcement arm of the Sign Ordinance. The Sign Ordinance can be found in Chapter 4 Article 4 of the UDO. The purpose and intent of the Sign Ordinance is to establish a set of standards for the design, installation maintenance and removal of signs within the City. Violators will be written up and possibly fined depending on the severity. If you feel there are any signs that are illegally on the public right of way please contact 311 or call our office (706) 653-4126
