Does the sign size equation also apply to awnings?

Yes, but not in the same way. Only the printed area of the awning is calculated as “sign area.” Fixed awnings are limited to a projection of 30 inches from the front of the building and must be at least 8 feet from the sidewalk. Retractable awnings have different specifications so review the code chapter on signs or check with the Zoning Office.
