Last week in the news, several communities were featured for their sign code efforts:
Putnam Co, WV business owners say sign codes are hurting their businesses. One issue is EMCs, which can change 8 times per day, compared to schools’ EMCs, which can provide more than 10,000 messages a day.
Des Moines, IL makes its first zoning changes in 50 years, prohibiting 23 different types of signs including digital displays.
Scottsdale, AZ revises its sign codes to appease a farmer’s market who had sued over free speech violations.
