The Peachtree Corners City Council voted recently to modify its temporary sign permit ordinance to make it easier for retailers, restaurants and other businesses to let the public know they are open for business and alert them to any changes in operating hours.

The city will now waive required permit fees for temporary signs and has removed the 21-day limit. Businesses are still required to apply for sign permits. The amended resolution will be in effect until the end of the year.

“We realize the COVID-19 pandemic is having a profound impact on our businesses,” said Mayor Pro Tem, Weare Gratwick. “These are difficult times, and we want to do what we can to help businesses convey important messages to their customers so that the public knows that the businesses are open, that they are following current safety protocols and other important notices.”

Regulations including restrictions on banner size, how signage may be attached, number of banners permitted, and real estate and construction signs remain in place.

Businesses may apply for sign permits at www.peachtreecornersga.gov by selecting the ‘Business’ tab on the homepage, then ‘Building & Permitting’ in the pulldown menu. Questions: 678-691-1200.
