As of May 1, 2019, pursuant to the amended Sign Regulations approved by the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court on April 23, 2019, all sign permit applications must be submitted directly to Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority (“FBCTRA”), instead of Fort Bend County, for review and approval. However, sign permits previously submitted and approved through the Fort Bend County permitting process will remain valid, pursuant to the terms of the updated Sign Regulations.
Prior to submitting a sign permit application, please review your submittal thoroughly to ensure your sign plans comply with the updated Sign Regulations, which govern the placement, size, and certain aspects of sign design, to achieve visual continuity, reduce sign clutter, and enhance driver safety along Grand Parkway, Westpark Tollway, and Fort Bend Parkway (“County Toll Roads”). These regulations help establish the permitting, construction, maintenance, and alternation requirements for all signs placed along County Toll Roads.
All applicants are required to mail application, sign plans, and payment by check to the attention of Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority, 1950 Lockwood Bypass, Richmond, TX 77469. Make checks payable to Fort Bend County Toll Road Authority. Once an application is received by the FBCTRA, it will be reviewed and processed within ten (10) business days pending no outstanding permit or processing issues. For all questions or concerns about the sign application process, refer to the updated Sign Regulations or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (832) 735-7385.
FBCTRA is actively working to implement an online portal for submitting and processing permits, pursuant to Section 1.b.2 of the Updated Sign Regulations.
