These permits are for placing signs on existing public transit benches or shelters. See the application packets to view the requirements.
Technically we don't issue any brand new permits. Instead, we reuse the permits that existed as of May 31, 2007, when the new law was passed. We call these preexisting permits. We issue updated permits for new signs and new locations.
When one of these permits is not being used, records are kept so that it can be used again. In this state they gather "relocation credits," which can be bought and sold.
You will need a preexisting permit or relocation credit to apply for this type of permit.
A list of owners with relocation credits is included in the application packet. Contact us before purchasing.
The permit you buy limits the size of your sign and how far away from its original location you may build.
Once you own that permit or credit, you apply to this office to get an updated permit to build a sign at a new site.
