Decorative Sign (Banner) Application
The City of Charlotte implemented a Decorative Sign (Banner) Ordinance in July 2011.  To display a decorative sign, please do the following:

1. Read the ordinance and guidelines.
2. Submit an application and hold harmless agreement to the Charlotte Department of Transportation. 

If interested in displaying a decorative sign in the Uptown area, Charlotte Center City Partners coordinates this effort.  Apply here.

Decorative sign means a pictorial representation, including illustrations, words, numbers, or decorations; emblem; flag; banner; pennant, that promotes or celebrates the city, its neighborhoods, civic institutions, or public activities and events in the city.  Decorative signs may either be designed and displayed by the City directly or donated to the City on a permanent basis or for a limited period of time.
