"SIGN REGULATIONS THAT ENCOURAGE OUTSTANDING DESIGN"
Penn State Extension, 1.25 CM credits
How does your community regulate signs so they fit in with applicable design guidelines and community aesthetic desires? Jurisdictions often struggle with the regulation and administration of signs and aesthetics. This session will focus on the elements of great design for signs and zoning tools that can assist in the creation of signs that contain the elements of outstanding design. A case study will be presented on the City of Phoenix’s experience in performance based zoning to encourage the creation of designs that utilize comprehensive sign plans. A second case study will discuss the Town of Gilbert, Arizona Heritage District transformation, and how signs played a role in that transformation.
