It’s not all just fun-in-the-sun in southern Florida, it’s also a place for planners to learn how to effectively regulate signs so that communities benefit! On November 15th, there will be a Planning for Sign Code Success workshop in Doral, FL that will help local officials learn the hows and whys of sign construction, best practices in developing sign regulations, the latest fallout from the Reed v. Town of Gilbert decision, how to treat electronic signs, and local sign code perspectives from two FL jurisdictions. All while earning 3.25 CM credits!

This is ISA's 5th Planning for Sign Code Success workshop in 2019, with the others being held in San Francisco CA, Las Vegas NV, Birmingham AL, Ledyard CT - and one more to come in Fort Worth TX (Dec. 13th).

Let us know if you think your community could use a Planning for Sign Code Success!
