Effective sign control plays an important role in protecting community character, creating a level playing field for local businesses, and enhancing driver safety. Signs influence the public's perception, not just about individual businesses but also about commercial districts and even a community as a whole. However, drafting a sign code can be a legal minefield, and planners must be aware of how the First Amendment and other constitutional principles can affect a sign code's defensibility. This Essential Information Packet provides articles, reports, and guidebooks discussing how communities can steer clear of common legal pitfalls in local sign codes. The packet also contains model sign codes and examples of local sign codes that illustrate the principles of content neutrality and context sensitivity.
