The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in Reed vs. Town of Gilbert created numerous issues for communities in regulating signs. This program will provide an overview of this landmark case, as well as subsequent Federal and State court decisions that have affected local jurisdictions’ ability to enforce their sign regulations, including: Lamar Central Outdoor, LLC v. City of Los Angeles; Citizens for Free Speech, LLC v. County of Alameda; City of Corona v. AMG Outdoor Advertising, Inc.; and Retail Digital Network, LLC v. Appelsmith. The panel will discuss options for sign codes that are easier to administer and enforce in this “Post-Reed” era. The program will also review the technology behind electronic message centers and the legal considerations when regulating this sign type.
Planners attending this program will learn:
· Implications and impacts of Reed vs. Town of Gilbert.
· Issues and challenges when regulating signs including: legal, administration, and enforcement.
· The technologies and regulatory issues involved in electronic message centers/LED signs.
