What sign types and sizes are permitted for me to use to advertise my business?

Find out the zoning of the property where you wish to advertise your business. Refer to the San José Land Use Map.


After you have determined the zoning, please refer to the Sign Ordinance (Title 23) to see the sign regulations of your zoning.
