The City of Blue Springs actively enforces the Sign Code in order to reduce unnecessary sign clutter in the City of Blue Springs.

Master / Alternative Sign Plan

Shopping centers or businesses may choose to develop a Master / Alternative Sign Plan. The plan establishes criteria to govern the signage of a specific area. These plans are approved by the Planning Commission. View the Master / Alternative Sign Plan Application (PDF).

Sign Code Enforcement

The City recommends contacting the Community Development Department before putting out a sign, to make sure it is not an illegal sign. The City of Blue Springs may confiscate signs located in the public right-of-way or on utility poles.

If an illegal sign is not removed after the violation notice, a ticket will be issued.  See a full list of the prohibited signs (PDF) for the City of Blue Springs.

Contact or submit applications to Brad Stanton.
