Summer means garage and estate sales as well as an increase in traffic throughout town as visitors flock to the Lake Pueblo Reservoir. In order to keep our community clean and to provide a consistent, professional image for Pueblo West businesses, signage should adhere to the following guidelines established by the Pueblo West Metropolitan District Committee of Architecture and Pueblo County Planning and Development.
As for business signage, all new signs must be applied for and approved by the Pueblo County Planning & Development as well as the Pueblo West Metropolitan District Committee of Architecture prior to placement on a building or pole sign. Established structures with sign frames that have been reviewed by and approved may change sign faces without making application as long as the sign size does not change.
Additional business sign guidelines include:
Temporary banners must also be applied for prior to placement.
Signs must be professionally made, and hand-painted plywood signs are not acceptable.
Signs are limited in size depending on the zone district in which the business is located. Buildings that have multiple tenants have a total number of signs and sign square footage restrictions depending on the zoned district the business is located.
Property owners are responsible for application to the Pueblo West Metro Committee of Architecture for new signs and for their tenant’s compliance. Should the Committee of Architecture find violations on the property, the property owner will be contacted, and the property owners will be held accountable.
The roads of Pueblo West are monitored for illegal signage on a regular basis. If you have had a sign removed that you want to keep, contact Marcos Reyes, neighborhood services officer at Pueblo West Metro District Community Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org as signs are kept for two weeks and then discarded.
For more information about sign regulation specifications or zone districts, contact the Community Development department or visit our website at pueblowestmetro.com/build.
