DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING,
Planning & Zoning
Unless specifically exempted in the the City of Sandusky's Planning and Zoning Code, zoning clearance must be obtained from the Division of Planning for all signs exceeding 9 S.F. in total area before they are erected or altered. Zoning clearance is necessary to verify that the sign meets all zoning requirements prior to the issuance of a Building Permit.
A Zoning Permit is required for all portable signs regardless of size. The fee is $45 per month, and a property cannot have more than one portable sign erected for more than four months cumulative in any one year.
