Determining the Square Footage of a Sign
Overlay District
We multiply the length and width of your sign and arrive at the total square footage:

Continuing with the 50 square feet of available signage example, if
you were installing a wall sign that was 2 foot high and 10 feet long,
the sign would be 20 square feet, and there would still be 30 square
feet available for additional signage

Notice the dashed lines around the signs

First formula: length x width = sign square footage
 Second formula: available square footage  sign square footage = remaining square footage
Remainder of the City
We multiply the length and width of your sign and arrive at the total square footage:

Continuing with the 40 square feet of available signage example, if
you were installing an awning sign that was 2 feet high and 10 feet
long, the sign would be 20 square feet, and there would still be 20
square feet available for signage between the wall or projecting sign
areas
 Sign area means the smallest square, rectangle, triangle,
circle, or combination thereof which encompasses the entire sign,
inclusive of any border and trim, but excluding the base, apron,
supports, and other structural members. Notice the dashed lines around
the signs

First formula: length x width = sign square footage

Second formula: available square footage  sign square footage = remaining square footage
