In light of the one-year anniversary of the US Supreme Court ruling in “Reed v. Town of Gilbert,” The Signage Foundation has released an updated version of its guide “Best Practices in Regulating Temporary Signs.” The court ruled, according to a release, “that communities must treat all types of temporary signs the same, regardless of the message contained on them.”

The Signage Foundation’s updated guide aims to address complexities new and old when it comes to both creating and abiding by temporary signage regulations. “Because of ‘Reed,’” says Wendy Moeller, author of the report, “real estate, political, and construction signs, etc. are now considered content-based signs.”
