As of May 24, 2018, the city of Chino Hills changed its municipal code and now requires a permit, free of charge, to be obtained for any signs placed in the city right-of-way in connection with any Single Exhibition Event (open houses, etc).
The city charges $36 per sign that is removed for being in violation of any of the requirements listed below, stating that is has a “zero tolerance” policy, invoicing for signs removed on the first incident.
Invoices not paid in 30 days will be sent to collections. If signs are not paid for any collected in 30 days, the signs will be disposed of.
In addition to a permit being required, the city requires the following:
-Permit to be attached to each sign
-A maximum sign area of 4 square feet
-Signs cannot be any taller than 4 feet tall
-There are 14 restricted corners of which signs cannot be placed within 50 feet (see details in link below)
-Signs are only allowed to be placed within landscaped planters
-Signs cannot be placed any closer than 100 feet from any other sign for the same event
-No more than 15 signs can be placed out on display
-Signs can only be out on display in the public right-of-way, Friday through Sunday and Observed Memorial Day and observed Veterans Day during the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The permit does take a few days to process so agents are urged to apply as soon as they know they need a permit. The agent needs to register themselves (good for one year), and also register the location of the event (such as an open house), which is good for 6 months.
Below are the links to requirements and registration. Restricted corners are listed, if the agent clicks on the names they will show a photo of the intersection with a red circle around the restricted areas.
