Signs are regulated by Chapter 205 Zoning; section 17 – Signs and Posters

Chapter 205 Zoning can be found here:  https://www.ecode360.com/5150607

A Zoning Permit is required for signs.  Please complete the Step 1 Zoning Review Verification Application found at the Building Department Application Link at the top right of this page.

With the application please include:

  • A photograph/sketch/rendering of the sign with dimensions
  • A brief narrative explaining if the sign is affixed to the building and/or free-standing and if pre-existing sign framework will be used to install the new sign.
  • If the framework for a free-standing sign is brand new (not pre-existing) a plot plan (sketch of the location with distance measurements) may also be required.

Please see the Town’s fee schedule for Zoning Permit Fees.  Checks are made payable to the Town of New Lebanon.  Please see the main Building Department page for instructions on how to drop off or mail-in hard copy applications and fees.
