Pole banners throughout the city can be a highly effective form of communication. Due to the public nature of these banners, the City of Richardson has created the following list of guidelines and an approval process.
Complete the Application Packet and return to the Communications Department no later than 15 business days prior to desired installation date. The City recommends submission of the Application Packet 30 business days prior to installation.
After your packet has been reviewed, a member of the Communications staff will contact you to review your project, make any necessary recommendations and to schedule the installation of your banners. The City does not handle the printing of banners but does install and remove each banner. Installation fee is $50 per banner and installation and removal of banners must be performed by the city.
We ask that those wishing to apply for the sign pole banner program fit into one of the approved acceptable communication groups. Those groups include City outreach and community events, approved Richardson arts groups (which can be found on cor.net), and school district activities. Additional applications will be accepted for review but may be denied.
Advertisements or communications with the intention of selling a product or service are prohibited unless the City offers special exemption. Banners with a sponsor logo that covers more than 10% of the banner area are prohibited. Additional restrictions can be enforced on a case-by-case basis if the City finds the content inappropriate.
