Portable Signage

Not-For-Profit Portable Signs in Grande Prairie

The City of Grande Prairie Parks Operations administers a program that permits portable sign businesses within Grande Prairie to place portable signs on the City’s arterial roadways to advertise not for profit or community events.

Locations in Grande Prairie

There are 66 approved locations within Grande Prairie that are available for this program. Each approved site location is based on meeting the following criteria: Land Use Bylaw (zoning), traffic safety and visibility requirements. No other locations are available for this program at this time. The City may under certain circumstances grant other “special locations” within a city boulevard. Permission for these “special locations” must be obtained by contacting Parks Operations directly before finding a portable sign company to advertise.

Use of Public Lands Bylaw  

Use of these sites is governed under Bylaw C-1078 - Use of Public Lands.  In 2011, Parks Operations, in conjunction with various portable sign companies operating within Grande Prairie, developed Policy 605-1 and Procedure 605-2 to administer the program.

How to Advertise on City Boulevards

If you have a community event (meeting the definition in Policy 605-1) such as:
  • Sport Registration (Minor Hockey Registration), 
  • Charitable Event (Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life) or, 
  • School Event (Christmas Concert, Kindergarten Registration) 
and you are looking to advertise your event on an approved city boulevard, you are encouraged to contact one of the portable sign companies participating in the 2017/2018 program:

Each company may place signs at various locations within designated areas of the City. All sites are subject to availability.
