SIGN ORDINANCE UPDATES & LEGISLATION
Randal Morrison frequently consults with local governments and legislators in many states on sign ordinance update projects and proposed new legislation.
Reasons for updating local sign laws:
* Litigation defense: when sign-related litigation is threatened, or has already been filed, legal review of the current sign code is an urgent legal matter.
* Preventive law: bring the existing sign ordinance into conformance with court rulings on the constitutionality, or other validity issues, regarding sign regulation.
* Accommodate citizen requests for policy changes - the most common issues today are policy choices over digital signs, political signs and city as landlord to billboard companies.
