The City of Long Beach grants permits for the installation of pole banners. The manufacture, installation, and removal of banners are the responsibility of the event organizer and their banner contractor. Permits will be issued for banners that advertise events that occur wholly or in part within Long Beach city limits. Holiday and Seasonal Banners are subject to these guidelines.
For these Guidelines, a pole banner is defined as a banner suspended over public streets (which includes the sidewalk and roadway) and attached to a single street light pole. Overhead banners and banners hung on private property are not a part of these guidelines. Overhead banners are banners that span the roadway and are usually suspended from poles on either side of the street. Banners placed on private property are governed by the Zoning code.
