Coming up with reasonable and enforceable sign codes can often be a complex and controversial process. With so many community stakeholders caring about sign codes, it is important to get the most accurate, up-to-date information and expertise as possible. The seminar will present modules that educate experienced land use planners on the technology within signs, sign code issues, understanding electronic message centers, and the importance of signs to business. In light of the new challenges imposed by the recent Supreme Court Reed ruling, attendees will be presented with important interim and permanent policy changes to bring municipal ordinances into compliance with the Court’s new precedents. Attendees will learn the latest technologies, controls, impacts and regulatory issues involved with on-premise signs. They will learn how sign construction and design is affected by building and electric codes, as well as energy efficiency and lighting science concerns. Attendees will be instructed in the technologies involved in electronic message centers and ways to control their use. Attendees will understand the impacts of well-designed signage on local small business. Finally, participants will be provided with resources available in model on-premise sign codes.
