In granting summary determination for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), the Court concluded that a business lacked the appropriate permit for an “off-premises” sign (i.e., a sign that is unrelated to the activities conducted at the sign’s actual location).  Although the sign may have been permitted at one point more than 40 years prior, the business failed to present any evidence that this permit had ever been renewed.
