Sign Code

What Is It?

Our Sign Code regulates most permanent signs in the city of Seattle. It covers:

  • What signs are allowed in the city
  • Standards for signs in the public right-of-way and near intersections and driveways
  • Specific requirements for signs in each zone

If your sign is in a shoreline district, it must also comply with the Shoreline Master Program.
