Subject: What Design Standard For Signs?

This is a question regarding commercial signage and sign supports.

Are these governed by building code(s)? It occurs to me that BUILDING
codes
are just that: Codes that govern the construction of BUILDINGS, which of
course a sign is not.

Highway signage is governed (typically) by AASHTO's sign standard, but I
don't see how this would apply for a commercial sign which may or may
not be
close to a roadway, and is most likely on private property.

Anyone have a clue?
