Important Notice to Business Owners Regarding Time Period for Converting Pole Signs to Monument Signs
This page is to inform you of an important date that is approaching for converting pole signs to monument signs. On June 5, 2007, the Largo City Commission approved comprehensive changes to the City's Sign Code. One of the key changes involves the transition from pole signs to monument signs with the intent to create an aesthetic in keeping with the community's desires. Pole signs are now considered non-conforming; the new standard requires freestanding signs to be monument style signs with a maximum height of eight (8) feet. A ten year amortization period for non-conforming signs was established with the new sign ordnance in order to help businesses with non-conforming pole signs recover the costs of these signs and budget funds for a new monument sign. All property owners and tenants should note that there are five (5) years remaining on the 2007 sign amortization period. As of June 5, 2017, all non-conforming signs will be required to be removed.
