New Temporary Sign Rules for Non-Profit Events


In an effort to balance the Town's strong desire to support the numerous non-profit events in and around Emerald Isle with the Town's aesthetic goals and consistency with business sign rules, the Board of Commissioners recently adopted new temporary sign rules for non-profit events. 

A total of 8 temporary signs are allowed in the NC 58 right-of-way for each non-profit event, with 3 signs up to 24 sq. ft. in size and 5 signs up to 6 sq. ft. in size.  The signs must be neatly prepared (or professionally fabricated), and must be made of a rigid material (i.e., wood, plastic, aluminum, etc.; no banners are permitted).  Signs can be placed up to 30 days prior to the non-profit event.  

For more information, please contact Town staff at 252-354-3424.  The new ordinance can also be viewed at .
