Frequently Asked Questions

Sign Application

If you are opening or expanding a business in the downtown, please click here for details about Beverly Main Streets’ Facade and Sign Improvement Program, a program in partnership with the City to provide assistance to business and property owners looking to improve downtown storefronts.  Grants are available to help business owners create exemplary signs in accordance with Beverly’s Downtown Design Guidelines.  Please contact Gin Wallace at Beverly Main Streets or Emily Hutchings at the Beverly Planning Department for additional information.

To assist business owners in developing sign applications, the Design Review Board has provided imagery from three separate sign applications that clearly demonstrate how signs will be developed and erected.  Please note that these images do not guarantee that the Design Review Board will approve similar signs; the imagery is solely intended to demonstrate applicants may clearly show what signs look like, the dimensions of signs, and how the signs will appear when placed in their permanent locations.
