Get Your Sign Permits Online

Obtaining a sign permit in Chicago is now a simple 3-step process. As of Monday, July 3, 2006, registered sign contractors can apply for a sign permit online by selecting the E-Permit box and choosing Signs.

Registered sign contractors enter their application online and send in their payment. Once the payment is received the Zoning Department reviews the application, and if approved, DCAP will post the payment. Contractors can then access their online DCAP application and print their sign permit.
