Communities across the country have been updating sign codes in response to the 2015 Supreme Court decision of Reed v Town of Gilbert AZ, which prohibits content- based sign regulations. While Steamboat Springs’ Sign Code has not been fully updated for over 10 years, the issue has gained urgency due to this changed legal environment.
The update includes content-neutral regulations that should be clear, easy to use, and flexible for signs in different areas of the city, rather than the current one-size-fits-all approach.
We would love to hear your feedback, please submit comments!
