Signs on individual parcels throughout Estero Island fall under the FMB Land Development Code (LDC) and require an approved permit from the Town of Fort Myers Beach prior to installation.
There are several requirements regarding signs in the Land Development Code (LDC), and these requirements vary based upon the type of sign, the proposed use, and the proposed location. There are various sign requirements regarding lighting, location, size, height and width, number of signs per parcel, etc. Some sign types and uses are prohibited, and some are exempt from permitting requirements. If the proposed sign is not prohibited or exempt, a sign permit application can be completed and submitted through the IWorQ online permitting portal. The sign(s) application is reviewed to ensure that the proposed sign installation will be in compliance with the regulations in the LDC.
