House Signs

Rental residences in Oxford have a long tradition of house signs. A house sign (or building identification sign) does not require a permit, but there are some regulations, per 1151.05(e)(2).

No more than 1 wall sign per principal structure:

  • No more than 6 square feet in area.
  • Attached between 4 and 18 feet above the adjacent ground.
  • The sign shall be naturally illuminated only.
