SCRUB Available to Give Signage Workshops

Recently, SCRUB, the Public Voice for Public Space presented a workshop on legal and attractive accessory signage for business owners in Lower Moyamensing.  SCRUB was joined by representatives of the Community Design Collaborative, the City Commerce Department, the Department of Licenses and Inspections, and Councilman Frank DiCicco.

SCRUB distributed a specially prepared version of its Accessory Signage Handbook, providing information tailored to business owners in Lower Moyamensing.

SCRUB was honored by the invitation from the Lower Moyamensing Civic Association to make this presentation, and hopes to have the opportunity to help communities throughout the city with similar resources and events.  If your community is interested in SCRUB’s help preparing resources to inform area business owners in making decisions about their signage, please contact us.

Educate business owners in your neighborhood.  Our workshops and materials answer the questions:

  • Why is signage important?
  • What is permitted on your corridor or in your neighborhood?
  • What is the process for obtaining a proper permit?
  • What if signage is not in compliance?
  • Where can you turn for assistance with design and construction of new signage?

At your request, we can bring a representative from Licensing and Inspections and/ or a signage design professional.
