City Council Approves New Sign Ordinance

City Council Approves New Sign Ordinance 

DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – March 13, 2019 – After receiving input from residents and the Planning and Zoning Commission, City Council approved a new sign ordinance at the February 12 City Council meeting.

The city’s sign ordinance regulates all signage in the city and in the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).  The ordinance regulates the location, size, type, height, and materials of signs.  These regulations are adopted to protect the safety of residents of the city and ETJ and to protect the aesthetic look of the city.  The update is the result of changes in sign law and designed to adopt best practices related to sign regulation.   

The new ordinance includes:  updated definitions; changing regulation of signs to be based on zoning districts or land use in the area; streamlining approval of signs; regulating all noncommercial signs in the same manner; and other procedural changes.  The City also adopted a sign chart that is designed to provide accessible information related to the size, number, and permitting (if any) of each type of sign regulated by the City.

The ordinance is currently in effect with the exception of temporary signs, which provisions shall be effective June 1, 2019. To read the new ordinance or sign chart in its entirety, please visit
