Highway businesses allowed taller signage

Email News Alerts

Businesses near major highways are now allowed to have taller signs.

The city of Perham has revised its highway commercial signage ordinance to allow signs up to 50 feet in height, giving businesses near high-traffic roadways greater visibility.


Under the previous ordinance, adopted in 2008, signs could reach a maximum height of 35 feet, both downtown and near the highway. The new ordinance does not change the height restriction for downtown businesses.
