MAIN STREET GARDNERVILLE’S CONSTRUCTION GUIDE

Temporary Signage - A-Frame

Douglas County Planning Department, through the Board of County Commissioners, has approved a resolution to waive application fees for temporary signage and will not code enforce during construction season,

If the following criteria are met

  • An Application for Temporary Signage is submitted to the Douglas County Planning Department for your business.
    • The signage meets the requirements as outlined in Douglas County Code (20.620.043) to include:
    • It will only be displayed during regular business hours.
    • The sign must be securely affixed to the ground (bolted or weighted), must not block a public sidewalk or be placed in the public right-of-way, and must not block site visibility along the street or pose a traffic hazard.

The waiver of fees for temporary signage will be sundown after construction is complete or by the end of 2024. Businesses must then reapply and pay applicable fees for their temporary signage or face code enforcement for any infractions after that point.
