The City recognizes that signs perform an important function in identifying properties, businesses, services, residences, events and other matters of public interest. Depending on their size, numbers and character, and location signs affect the safety of vehicular traffic and define the character of the area.

The Sign Code establishes the standards for the location, quantity and characteristics of signs throughout the City. The intent of the code is to encourage effective communication, maintain a pleasing appearance, attract business, improve safety, minimize adverse effects and define areas of the city.

Permits are required for the installation of most types of signs, whether temporary or permanent. Crystal Lake Unified Development Ordinance governs the requirements for signs.
