Sign Fees are divided into three categories. These three areas include Sign Plan Review, Permits/Inspections, and Miscellaneous fees. These three areas are further defined by the following:
• Sign Plan Review Fees. Sign Plan Review fees are based on the typical staff effort (time) to review sign applications for permits. The schedule includes plan review options including Design Review for additional height and area of a proposed sign, a Comprehensive Sign Plan, as well as procedures for Variance to Sign Code and Use Permit approvals.
• Sign Permit Fees/Inspections. Sign Inspections are financed by sign permits. Permit fees for signs are based on the typical staff effort (time) for travel and site visit. Fees are adjusted accordingly based on applications for wall mounted signs, ground (monument) signs or billboards due to the variation in inspection complexity. An electric component inspection fee is charged to applications which do not include a UL Listing and warrant staff review of electrical components of the sign.
• Miscellaneous Fees. Miscellaneous Fees are those fees that do not fall under any other sign activities. (Ord. No. G-5458, § 1(Exh. A), 2009; Ord. No. G-5472, § 1(Exh. A), 2010)
