Regulations for the location, size, placement, and certain features of signs in the District were established to maintain the integrity and enhance the historical character of the area. The regulations are intended to encourage compatibility between the signs and the architecture of the District and promote the preservation of the area.
Signs in the OSC are regulated on the following factors:
Permanent signs in the OSC require staff review, review by the Olde Schaumburg Centre Commission (OSCC) or OSC Sign Subcommittee, and approval by the Village Board. An application for sign review in the OSC District should be filed with the community development department and include the following information:
Once a sign has been approved by the village board, the sign permit will be processed through the Community Development Department.
Temporary signs in the OSC still must follow criteria within the Sign Ordinance and be approved by staff, but do not require review by the OSCC.
