2018 Sign Code Update
Background
Reed vs. The Town of Gilbert (US Supreme Court Decision, 2015) identified areas in which jurisdictions may need to amend their sign code, specifically in relation to "off-premise" signs.  The recent ruling does not allow jurisdictions to have criteria based on the sign message.  Regulations must be limited to location, duration, design, materials, etc. 

Process & Project Timeline
The city's Planning Department will be working on the Sign Code Update in conjunction with the Planning Commission throughout 2018.   A series of public meetings and multiple outreach efforts to gain input, suggestions, and preferred direction relating to the necessary amendments will be held. 
View the project timeline.

Public Involvement
The city's Planning Commission will discuss this topic over the next few months and prepare for public outreach and input.  Commission meeting schedules and agendas are available on the Planning Commission page.

More information related to the code update, as it moves forward, will be available through various communication platforms.  Interested parties are encouraged to register for notifications and/or to follow the city's social media sites to receive information and meeting notices.
