Sign Permits

You are required to have a sign permit before you construct, erect, alter or relocate all signs - temporary and permanent.

  • Prior to approval, signs must meet specific criteria. If you are part of a shopping center, business park, multi-tenant building or other coordinated development it is likely there is an approved sign scheme you must also follow. Your plans will be submitted to our Planning Division for review before permits are approved for installing or changing any signs.
  • We issue temporary sign permits in 15-day increments, up to 60 days per calendar year, per tenant per address.
  • Stand-alone buildings with a minimum frontage per code are allowed to have freestanding temporary signs, but tenants in multi-tenant buildings are not. However, property owners can obtain sign permits for temporary, free-standing signs at multi-tenant buildings.

Sign regulations in the Lenexa City Code Article 4-1-E.


Sign fees vary by type and size.
