Third-Party Electronic Billboard Signs

On April 29, 2019, Council defeated a bylaw to develop Development Permit Design Guidelines for electronic billboard signs, as well as, policy for the provision of voluntary community benefits for new electronic billboard signs. Furthermore, on the same night, another bylaw, which had received three readings on February 04, 2019 and would have allowed third-party electronic billboard signs in the City of Coquitlam, was abandoned.

Third-party signs are those that advertise businesses, services, or items that are not sold or offered on the same property. Both third-party signs and electronic billboard signs are currently prohibited under the City’s Sign Bylaw.  For more information regarding Sign Permits, please visit our Sign Permits page.
