Billboard Face Size 250 sf max

Hello Frank:

The maximum allowed size for billboard face is 250 sf. What billboard configuration would you recommend? The size limit is the less than 30 sheet and greater than 8 sheet.


Great question, as I’ve had the same situation before. If it is going to be a wooden sign, I’d go with a 12’ x 20’, as that can be built with full size sheets of 4’x8’ plywood (5 wide by 1 1/2 sheets high). If it’s a monopole, I’d scale down a 30-sheet engineering to 12’ x 20’, or scale down a 10’ x 30’ to 8’ x 30’, since you can reduce windload without requiring new engineering to be drafted.
