Forsyth County allows businesses to put up extra signs during coronavirus

New county order allows businesses to add four additional signs advertising modified operations.

CUMMING, Ga. — A temporary Additional Signage Allowance order has been approved in Forsyth County to let restaurants and retail establishments place extra signage outside their business.

The order authorizes businesses to place additional signage for emergency purposes, such as:

  • Whether they are open for business and any modified hours of operation
  • Public safety protocols
  • Alternative avenues for conducting business such as curbside service or online business
  • Enhanced or alternative price-lists
  • Other forms of communication that are required due to the evolving nature of the business environment during the local State of Emergency 

In addition to any signage currently authorized by the Forsyth County Sign Code on a lot, two additional expression signs may be installed on the lot:

  • Expression signs can generally be up to 10 feet tall and have a sign face of 32 square feet. This additional allowance does not allow these signs to be placed in the right of way. 
  • Air or gas-filled balloons or other devices which have a capacity for air or gas which exceeds three cubic feet
  • Streamers or two pennants
  • Banners with a maximum size of 32 square feet
