Side Codes and Regulations by Community Planners

Sign Code and Regulatory Efforts with Planners Boost Business

Industry NewsMarch 17

Community planners play a key role in determining whether a sign is built, and not all have the training to fully understand the potential impact of their efforts on local businesses. But that is changing.

According to a recent survey conducted by McKinley Advisors, nearly one third of planners surveyed said they have begun to use the International Sign Association as a resource when dealing with sign codes within the last three years. ISA has significantly increased its work with planners in recent years, providing them with important resources to guide them through sign regulatory issues and sign code updates.

Among the latest efforts:

  • A new video shows planners and local officials the value that working with sign and graphics industry experts can have in building safe and vibrant communities.
  • ISA staff experts will meet face-to-face with planners and local officials at the 2016 American Planning Association’s National Conference in April to answer questions about sign codes and provide complimentary research and information. ISA’s James Carpentier will moderate a panel session, “Regulating Signs after Reed v. Town of Gilbert.”
  • Plus, a web portal houses numerous resources for communities considering sign code changes.
