Sign Ordinance

The Forsyth County Sign Ordinance seeks to promote and ensure the aesthetics of the county and help communities maintain their scenic heritage and unique character. Regulations encourage creative and well-designed signs that contribute in a positive way to the county's visual environment and are in the interest of businesses as they avoid instances of diminishing return where individual business signs are not adequately visible due to unregulated competition.
