Sign Permit

Sign Permits are needed for any new sign to be installed or replaced. Sign permits are reviewed by the City of Mendota Heights Community Development Director. If the proposed sign requires a new foundation/footing base, it must include structural (engineered) details and be approved with a building permit.  



Sign Permit fees include a permit fee and plan review fee. The total fee will be the sum of these two amounts. 

  • Permit fee is based off permit valuation*, per Attachment A- Fee Schedule (PDF). 
  • Plan review fee is 65% of building permit fee.

 *valuation means the actual or estimated dollar amount charged for permitted work including materials, labor, profit and other fixed cost. It is the amount the contractor will be charging the customer for the work to be performed.
