We will email you payment instructions once we approve your permit application. Fees vary greatly and are calculated based on the estimated cost of your sign project.
You can view any fees that are due and pay them using our Permit Lookup tool.
After fees have been paid and reviews have been approved, we will email you to let you know your plans are available for download. Login to ProjectDox and download your plans from the Approved folder.
Don't forget to print the approved plans and post them at your project site.
