The Town of Estes Park regulates the display and construction of signs. Signs permits are required to ensure all new signs comply with the requirements of the Sign Code (Estes Park Municipal Code Chapter 17.66), and to protect the public from hazardous conditions that result from signs that are unsafe or obscure the vision of motorists.
