approval application, a $200 sign fee, 25 copies of a Plat of Survey, 25 copies of the sign
elevations, and other appropriate supporting information must be received by the Community
Development Department at least two weeks prior to the Plan Commission meeting. The
Plan Commission meets on the first and third Mondays of each month. All oversized plans
must be folded, collated, and accompanied by a reduced copy.
3. Staff Summary: Approximately 3 to 5 days prior to the public meeting, a staff summary
and report will be published. The summary will be provided to the Plan Commission and to
the applicant. At the Plan Commission meeting, the applicant should be prepared to discuss

authorized representative of the property owner may submit an application for a sign permit
