Signage Code Rewrite

City Council Bill #18-0272

The City of Baltimore is in the process of rewriting its signage code.  The rewrite is in response to a 2015 Supreme Court Decision stemming from the Reed v. Town of Gilbert court case.  In addition, the goal is to bring clarity and ease of use to our signage code. 

On August 6, 2018 City Council Bill #18-0272/ Zoning- Sign Regulations was introduced. The proposed legislation is a complete repeal and replace of Title 17 in Article 32, the zoning code for the City.  Also, there are signage related amendments proposed in Article 32.

Below are helpful links and documents that will allow you to participate and follow this legislation as it moves through the City Council process.  Also, if you would like to make comments on the bill prior to a Planning Commission hearing please send comments to [email protected].
