Event producers wanting to display signs or banners on downtown light poles or on public rights-of-way must contact the Louisville Metro Public Works Department to apply for a Signs and Banners Permit and to coordinate scheduling.
All signs and banners must meet departmental specifications and be installed in accordance with all rules and regulations. Signs and banners may not be installed in any way that will obstruct public streets and sidewalks.
Decorative banners may be hung on light poles in the Central Business District with approval and assistance from Louisville Metro Public Works Department. No corporate logos are allowed.
Event producers applying for a Signs and Banners Permit must deliver their signs and banners to the Louisville Metro Public Works Department at least 10 working days before they are to be hung or installed. Signs and banners must be picked up within five working days after they have been removed or Louisville Metro will dispose of them.
