Signs are required to meet the standards of Section 2-300(M) and Section 6-900 of the Rock Hill Zoning Ordinance. Please note, even though certain types of signs may be exempt from requiring a sign permit in the zoning ordinance, other permits may still be required such as an electrical permit for lighted signs. Please contact staff at 803-329-5590 with any sign questions.

Sign Permit Application
To apply for a sign permit, complete the Sign Permit Application and submit with any required attachments. Sign permit applications go through a plan review process that may take up to three business days. If you are placing a sign in the Historic District, please see our handout on Signs in the Historic District.

License Requirements
All sign contractors are required to have a City of Rock Hill Business License before they can obtain a sign permit. All electrical contractors are required to have a South Carolina Electrical Contractors License and a City of Rock Hill Business License before they can be listed on a permit. Any electrical work performed is required to be done by a South Carolina licensed electrician. The electrician must be listed on the sign permit before the permit can be issued.

Sign Inspections
Inspections are required for all signs. Please call (803) 329-5590 the day before to schedule an inspection. You will need to have your permit number ready when calling. You can also schedule inspections online at www.cityofrockhill.com/onlineservices.
