August 2014 Luncheon

Commercial Sign Regulations

Thursday, August 28, 2014
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Travel to Edwardsville’s Leclaire Room on the historic Lewis and Clark Community College N.O. Nelson campus (622 Troy Road, Edwardsville, IL) on August 28, 2014 to hear a presentation and panel discussion on one of the most requested SLMS-APA lunch topics: Commercial sign regulations! Commercial signs are always rife with controversy. Sign technology moves fast while local ordinances are often slow to change. Meanwhile, planners must remain aware of court decisions that can change public policy and result in your community being vulnerable to legal challenges.

Creve Coeur Community Development Director Paul Langdon, AICP, Collinsville Community Development Director Mitch Bair, AICP, and Edwardsville City Planner Scott Hanson, AICP, will be joined by Creve Coeur City Attorney Carl Lumley and Edwardsville City Attorney Jeff Berkbigler for a discussion on how St. Louis Metro Area communities address “Electronic Message Board” signs, provide MO and IL legal perspectives on concepts such as Creve Coeur’s new “content neutral” approach, and give overviews on recent commercial sign court decisions in both states.
