The installation and display of signs is regulated by Chapter 31, Signs, of the Monterey Municipal Code. In Monterey, there are a few basic requirements, but the ultimate approval decision is made by the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) or staff based on compatibility with the area, the building, and general principals described in the City’s Sign Standards, Regulations & Guidelines. With few exceptions, all permanent signs require a Sign Permit.
