What the Township Says about Signage

There are zoning code rules the Township of Cherry Hill uses when handing out zoning permits. The ordnances are based on what part of the township the business sits in and the Township offers a zoning map to help you determine zoning areas.

Signs you will need a permit for include:

  • Facade Signs
  • Monument Freestanding Signs
  • Hanging Cabinet Signs
  • Temporary Signs
  • Changes to signage

Understanding Sign Ordinances

The most important thing to remember that all signs require sign permits whether they are façade, freestanding, or temporary signs. The best bet for all sign ordinances comes direct from Cherry Hill Township. In Article V of their zoning regulations, signage requirements begin on page 65—and it’s also a handy document to keep if you need additional zoning information.

Basic sign requirements include:


  • No more than four signs per business; but there are some exceptions to this rule.
  • Monument or freestanding signs can only be placed in locations with 50 feet of frontage area.
  • Freestanding or monument signs must be no more than 17 feet in height.
  • The size of any sign is computed by multiplying its greatest height by its greatest length, exclusive of the supporting structures.
  • Business owners must be current on taxes and have a business license from the Township.
  • Obtaining a Sign Permit with proposed drawings.

At Sunrise Signs, we are happy to help you weed through the Cherry Hill Township sign ordinances.
