Figure 2.62. Pedestrian Information Sign Placement and Separation Distance Criteria.
2.39. Wall Mounted Exterior Signs.
2.39.1. Style. Wall mounted signs should complement the architectural style and siting of each
building. The message should be placed where it can be clearly seen by visitors.
2.39.2. Placement. Place the message over the main entrance to the building whenever possible.
See Chapter 10 for further placement criteria.
2.39.3. Visibility. Use the manufacturer's template to check the final positioning of the message
on the wall prior to installation. Check the sight lines to ensure that the message is not blocked
by foliage or other obstructions.
2.39.4. Coequal Organizations. If the building houses two coequal organizations, place the
messages flush to opposite sides of the building facade.
2.39.5. Non-frontal Entrance. If the main entrance does not front on the roadway, place the
message on the side of the building that faces the roadway and flush to the entrance side of the
building. Mount the organizational emblem adjacent to the entrance.
2.39.6. Set Back Entrances. If the building is set back from the roadway and is not visible or
only partially visible from the roadway, place a freestanding identification sign next to the
entrance driveway to the building on the side of the driveway closest to the building. Place the
wall-mounted sign over the main entrance to the building.
