Project sites with construction fences or sidewalk sheds permitted on or after July 1, 2013 must meet new signage requirements that emphasize the type of work underway and highlight the project’s contact information.
The new, standardized construction fence panel and parapet signage designs consolidate permit postings and contractor signage – and improve the overall appearance of job sites for communities.
The new law also requires that all other signage be removed and posted within the construction site – except for standpipe signs and any signage required by law to be posted outside the site. In addition, these temporary structures must now be painted hunter green.
For detailed information regarding compliance requirements at permit renewal, exemptions for one-, two- and three-family projects, and design requirements for demolition projects, see Local Law 47 of 2013.
