Sign Permits and Application Forms

The Building Services Department issues permits for both temporary and permanent signs. The Building Services Department works with the Planning and Zoning Department throughout the Plan Review process for all sign applications. Please fill out the application form and submit all other required information attached to your application form for review. 

NOTE: Sign contractors must obtain an annual license from the Building Services Department. The City of Dubuque will only issue sign permits to contractors who obtain a Sign Contractors License.
