Reed v. Town of Gilbert - Signs of Our Times by A. Thomas Levin of Meyer Suozzi English & Klein PC
8:30 a.m. Breakfast & Registration
9-10 a.m. Presentation
$15 per Program
Municipal attorneys and planners across the country worried about the fallout of Reed v. Town of Gilbert. At a minimum, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Reed, municipalities will want to act quickly to review and potentially amend sign codes that regulate different categories of signs differently. But, what should municipal attorneys and planners watch out for? Will all categorical distinctions be subject to strict scrutiny, and, if so, when, if ever, will the governmental justifications of aesthetics and traffic safety be sufficient to withstand judicial review? Are there any circumstances under which a municipality may place fewer restrictions on political or ideological signs than on directional signs? What about distinctions between commercial and noncommercial signs? A. Thomas Levin, Esq., who has advocated successfully for many years for municipal clients, will examine these questions in this program, which will give participants a grounding in how local government boards, land use practitioners, and planners in New York are affected by the Supreme Court's most recent pronouncement on sign regulations.
