The City encourages the use of enhanced screening for hoarding applications. This adds visual interest and public art as well as provides opportunities for youth and artists to showcase their work. This is in addition to required adequate screening, fencing or scaffolding (as per the Alberta Building Code) around a site to protect the public from any possible hazards.

How to apply

Documentation of project information, engineered stamped drawings, and other required items must be submitted along with your application. See a list of Hoarding permit application requirements.
