§ 20.28.040  PERMITS REQUIRED.
   A.   Except as otherwise specifically provided in this chapter, no sign shall hereafter be erected, reerected, constructed or altered until a sign permit for the same has been issued by the person or body having final authority to do so or until a conditional use permit with respect to such sign has been finally granted by either the Planning Commission or the City Council in instances in which a conditional use permit is required.
   B.   Where proposed signs are to be illuminated, a separate electrical permit shall be obtained.  Where a permanent freestanding sign is proposed which exceeds one thousand ($1,000) dollars in valuation, is in excess of six (6) feet in height or, in the case of a permanent wall sign, is over twenty (20) square feet in area, a plan check fee in accordance with § 20.28.070.C. shall be required.  This provision shall be applied to all signs classified as nonconforming after the effective date of this chapter.
