Sign Ordinance

Per the current City of Pelham Sign Ordinance (PDF):

"All non-conforming/illegal signs and banners must be removed by January 31, 2017. Starting February 1st, violations will be issued to owners of any remaining non-conforming/illegal signs or banners."

When a Permit is Required

The City of Pelham Sign Ordinance requires the issuance of a permit to erect, change or alter any type sign. The square footage of the building determines the copy area and height allowed for signs. A plot plan will be needed for any pole sign or monument sign. The permit fee is based on the cost of improvement.
