Coming to Grips with Content Neutrality

Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 10:30amSign regulation is one of the most legally complicated aspects of planning. The First Amendment “free speech” clause requires content-neutral sign regulations. But how do you achieve it? Get a read on content neutrality along with pointers on reviewing sign codes for potential constitutional issues. The following cases will be discussed in this session. McCullen v. Coakley, 133 S.Ct. 2857 (2013). The case is not yet decided, but a decision will be likely in June. The question before the Court was whether a law that selectively excludes certain speakers within a 35’ radius of a reproductive health care facility violates the First Amendment. The Court’s answer will bear on lower-court interpretations of the content neutrality doctrine, which is the focus of many sign cases. Reed v. Town of Gilbert, 707 F.3d 1057 (9th Cir. 2013). The Church challenged a Town ordinance restricting size, duration, and location of temporary directional signs. The Ninth Circuit held that the ordinance was a content-neutral regulation and was a proper time, place and manner restriction. Neighborhood Enterprises, Inc. v. City of St. Louis, 644 F.3d 728 (8th Cir. 2011). Local neighborhood organizations challenged the City’s denial of a sign permit for a political mural. The Eighth Circuit found that the City’s sign code was content-based and unconstitutional because it requires the permitting authority to review the content of the message on the sign. Hucul Advertising v. Charter Township of Gaines, ___ F.3d ___, 2014 WL 463479 (6th Cir. 2014). Digital billboard companies challenged a local ordinance imposing dispersal requirements on digital billboards. The Sixth Circuit found that the local code was content-neutral and constitutional, because it regulated the placement of digital billboards and not the message, and the ordinance was found to further a significant governmental interest.
