Attendees will develop an understanding of the legal foundation upon which code enforcement rests, and the legal parameters in which they must work.
Many people like to express their support for a political candidate with a yard sign. Sometimes this form of freedom of expression conflicts with a city law banning or limiting the time in which political signs may be displayed. The question becomes whether such city laws infringe upon citizens’ and perhaps the candidates’ First Amendment rights.
This course will help code officials regulate signs from the perspective of state interests, including aesthetics and traffic safety. This course will also familiarize code officials with different forms of signage such as yard signs, political signs, freestanding signs and large signs like billboards.
Perfect for regulatory code enforcement and compliance officers and inspectors.
