Code Compliance - Complaints - Signs
Signs are prohibited in the rights-of-way, sight triangles, and on utility poles. City inspectors remove these illegal signs proactively and also when complaints are received from the public. Only the Planning Director or his/her designee may approve signs to be placed in the rights-of-way other than authorized traffic control signs. All signs in Norman require a permit, even when placed on private property, with few exceptions. Temporary banners are allowed as long as a permit has been obtained and the time limits are followed, and they are placed in a legal location on the property. Chapter 13 in the City of Norman’s Code of Ordinances contains the sign code that lists all allowed and prohibited signs, exceptions, and all permit requirements.
