(a) If a permit is issued under Section 8-25 for new construction on vacant residentially or agriculturally zoned land, or construction of a building or structure that would affect the footprint or height of any existing structure located on residentially or agriculturally zoned land or that is exempt from and exceeds any applicable building height limit, the Director must promptly require the recipient to post on the lot a conspicuous sign describing the proposed construction, specifying the time limit to appeal the issuance of the permit to the Board of Appeals, and including any other information the Director requires. The sign must conform to design, content, size, and location requirements set by regulation under Section 8-13(a).
(b) The regulations adopted under subsection (a) may allow a central sign to be posted, or otherwise vary the design, content, size, or location requirements, for any subdivision that consists of more than 5 new dwellings at a single site.
(c) The recipient must post the required sign within 3 days after the Department releases the permit to the recipient, and must maintain the sign until 30 days after the permit was released.
(d) If the recipient of a permit does not post a sign as required by this Section, the permit is automatically suspended until the recipient has posted the proper sign. If the recipient begins work under the permit without having posted the sign as required, the Director must immediately issue a stop work order. During the 30-day period after the sign is properly posted, any person may appeal the issuance of the permit as if the permit had been released to the recipient on the day the sign was posted.
