Houston Sign Administration regulates and permits all advertising signs within the City of Houston. The Houston Sign Code was originally adopted in May 1980 and revised in July 2020. The code provides standards for the use, quality, construction, and location of advertising signs throughout the City. The height, size, and lighting of signs is determined by the category of the street from which the sign will be viewed. The Code also regulates off-premise signs (also known as billboards) in the city, as well as extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).
