Maple Valley, Wash. - June 9, 2020 - The City of Maple Valley City Council adopted Ordinance O-20-700 at the Council meeting on Monday, June 8 which waives fees and permit requirements for temporary banner/special sales signs for a period of 90 days. Waiving the $25 fee associated with obtaining a temporary sign permit will assist in the recovery efforts of Maple Valley businesses who were impacted by the mandates related to COVID-19, including business closures. This temporary request was initiated by the Maple Valley/Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce. Waiving the permitting requirements will allow Maple Valley business to erect signs swiftly without delays in order to attract customers to their respective businesses. The substantive requirements of the City's sign code are still required to be met by businesses and failure to do so may lead to code enforcement actions. In addition, no more than two temporary signs per business are allowed by City code Questions and site plans should be directed to Matt Torpey, Community Development Manager, at matt.torpey@maplevalleywa.gov or 425-413-8800. read more
