The City of Blue Springs actively enforces the Sign Code in order to reduce unnecessary sign clutter in the City of Blue Springs.
All signs require a sign permit before they can be displayed. Please contact the Community Development Department or submit a sign permit application before displaying a sign. *All businesses that display signs in the city must have a business license with the City of Blue Springs.
Permanent or New Face Signs
All new permanent signs and new faces for signs with existing cabinets require a sign permit (PDF).
Shopping centers or businesses may choose to develop a Master / Alternative Sign Plan. The plan establishes criteria to govern the signage of a specific area. These plans are approved by the Planning Commission. View the Master / Alternative Sign Plan Application (PDF).
Sign Code Enforcement
The City recommends contacting the Community Development Department before putting out a sign, to make sure it is not an illegal sign. The City of Blue Springs may confiscate signs located in the public right-of-way or on utility poles.
If an illegal sign is not removed after the violation notice, a ticket will be issued. See a full list of the prohibited signs (PDF) for the City of Blue Springs.
