It is a “sign of the times” that local sign regulations raise many legal issues. Especially after recent court decisions about how the Free Speech under the First Amendment protections may affect local sign ordinances. The Local Land Use and Zoning WisLine Series from the Local Government Center begins January 20, 2016, by addressing this issue. Professor Brian Ohm and Planner Mike Slavney will present “Understanding Local Sign Codes” by WisLine teleconference 10:30 am to noon Wednesday January 20, 2016. Registure by phone at 608-262-0810 or online.
Other programs in this WisLine series are:
-Promoting Local Protection of Wetlands and Updates to the Shoreland Zoning Program
-Housing and the Community
-Community Vitality and Placemaking
Case Law and legislative Update
