The sign regulations for the city are intended to protect the health, safety, and general welfare by establishing standards for the design, construction, location, illumination, and maintenance of all signs and sign structures. Such regulations are necessary and desirable to ensure signs are designed, constructed, installed, and maintained in a way that protects the public welfare. The sign regulations are also essential in supporting the desired character of Waynesboro by controlling the size, placement, and use of signs.

Any person erecting, changing, installing or otherwise placing signs must first obtain a Sign Permit by submitting a Sign Permit Application, in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.6 of the Zoning Ordinance.
