Sign Placement Information


Signs placed within the City are regulated by the City of Rocklin Municipal Code’s Sign Ordinance and are enforced by Code Compliance. The Sign Ordinance provides rules and regulations for signs exposed to public view. The intent is to preserve and improve the appearance of the city by keeping the City beautiful and uncluttered. The ordinance also restricts signs which increase the probability of accidents by distracting attention or obstructing vision. View the Sign Ordinance in the Rocklin Municipal Code in Chapter 17.75 Sign Regulations.

Sign Permits

Permanent signs and temporary signs are required to be permitted visit the Sign Permit page for details. Commercial Signs require a building permit. Signs displayed without proper permits or that do not conform to the Sign Ordinance are not allowed. If you are found to have a sign that is not in conformance, you will be required to obtain the necessary permit(s) and bring your sign into compliance with the City’s ordinance or, if the sign is not allowable, you will be required to remove it. Temporary signs can be a hazard when placed within the public right-of-way (street poles, street landscaping, sidewalks, etc) and may be removed. Report an illegal sign at (916) 625-5498.
