The Chicago City Council has passed new legislation designed to streamline the city’s protocol for issuing signage permits. ISA lobbied the council alongside the Illinois Sign Association and Chicago’s Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) for more than a year. ISA says, in a release, that the old process was “arduous and lengthy” and required signage installers to seek new permits every five years, even if the sign hadn’t changed.

ISA says, in a release, that the old process was “arduous and lengthy” and required signage installers to seek new permits every five years, even if the sign hadn’t changed. The SBAC now reports that wait times will likely be reduced by 50 to 80 percent.

“Removing this overly restrictive permitting provision will enable small businesses in Chicago to grow,” says David Hickey, ISA’s VP of advocacy. “It is exciting to think that the third largest city in the US has a better understanding of how signs mean business in its community.”
