Ordinances regulating signs are typically addressed separately from other aspects of land use regulations due to the unique issues that regulating signage invokes. Communities across the country are in the process of updating sign codes in response to the 2015 Supreme Court decision of Reed v Town of Gilbert which prohibits content-based regulations. While Steamboat Springs’ Sign Code has been in need of updating for some time, the issue has gained urgency due to this changed legal environment.
Sign Code revisions will address clarity, ease of use, and flexibility to consider signs in the context of specific zone districts and areas of the city rather than the one-size-fits-all regulations currently in place. City Staff will be working with consultants through the winter and spring to develop a revised, content-neutral sign code for the City.
We would love to hear from you on this update - please submit your comments and attachments!
