The Town of Chesterton, in an attempt to inform prospective business owners of sign design and placement, is asking that you please consider the requirements for commercial signage before having a sign created and placed onto a building.
A permit from the Building Department is required before approval can be granted for the size and placement of the sign. The application process is simple. You will avoid a potential fine if you proceed to put up a sign without a permit. The permit process includes a review by the Building Department inspector to ensure compliance and conformity to sound design standards developed over many years. The fee for the sign permit is according to the size of the sign. Just as signs reflect the uniqueness of your business, they also reflect on the look of our community.
Please contact the Building Department for a permit application at (219) 926-2610 or click the link below to download the sign permit. Thank you for your cooperation.
