The City of Helena is considering the adoption of a new sign code. The proposed sign code will address a range of topics, including: scaling the size of on-building signage; digital signage restrictions; lighting standards; the elimination of off-premises signage, including billboards, 10 years after adoption, and more.

The Zoning Commission approved the recommendation at the June 11, 2024 meeting. The proposal will be presented to the City Commission for consideration in July.

A copy of the draft proposal can be found on the side of this page under "Documents". Public comment can be submitted using the button below.

Please note, the proposed meeting schedule has changed. A second info session has been added to the calendar, along with an additional Zoning Commission Work Session.

The goals of the new sign code are to improve clarity in signage regulation, increase conformance with recent legal rulings, and to ensure that the current needs of the community are being met. What has been prepared is a new sign code that not only supports businesses in effectively communicating with their customers but also enhances the visual appeal of Helena's streetscapes. The last comprehensive sign code update was adopted in 1997, although there have been some smaller changes since.

Thank you for taking time to review the draft proposal and share feedback.
