Sign Code Case Studies

ISA tracks sign code developments across the country and its "rapid response" service helps sign companies and local officials enact reasonable and beneficial sign codes. This collection of sign code case studies can be used to help provide guidance for sign companies as they work with local officials to create positive sign codes. Contact ISA's government affairs manager Kenny Peskin with questions.

Each case study identifies the issue, locale and outcome, providing valuable resources and guidance for members facing similar issues.
