The Acton Planning Division is now accepting all applications and payments online including sign permits, Special Permits, Site Plan, Subdivision, ANR, and Scenic Roads.
Signs are a necessary means of communicating information. Generally, signs are intended to be highly visible. They attract attention and are one of the most visible and apparent aspects of a town's character. They tend to produce a lasting impression on residents and visitors and they provide an indication of the commercial health of a business area and a town as a whole. Simplicity in design and restrained use of signs are necessary to prevent a sign overload which creates clutter and is as confusing as no signs at all.
The Acton Planning Division is here to help! If you would like to schedule a meeting to discuss your sign options and ideas prior to submitting your application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
