§ 153.056  STRUCTURAL AND DESIGN REQUIREMENTS.
   (A)   Design and stress diagrams. Before a permit shall be granted, the erector of every outdoor advertising sign, with the exception of temporary signs, shall submit to the Building Official or duly authorized representative a design and stress diagram or plan containing the design and stress specifications for such sign.
   (B)   Wind pressure. All outdoor advertising displays shall be constructed to withstand the wind pressure as specified by the prevailing Building Code.
   (C)   Plastic materials. All outdoor advertising displays suing plastic materials, wholly or partially, shall comply with the specifications stipulated in the prevailing Building Code.
   (D)   Measurements of sign area. The size of a sign shall be measured from the outside dimensions of the sign structure and frame. A sign may have one or more display faces, unless otherwise specified. For off-premises signs which are double faced, each face is considered a separate sign in computing the face area. For on-premises signs which are double faced, each face is considered a separate sign in computing the face area if each face is advertising a different business on the property. If the face area of an on-premises sign is identical on both sides, then the face area is computed by measuring one side only.
   (E)   Setbacks. The setbacks shall be measured from the outside frame of the sign. Setbacks are determined according to the type of sign and zoning district in which it is located. Under no circumstances shall a private sign be allowed to project into a public right-of-way.
