Sign Regulation Guidebook Workshop

Time: 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

A drive through most commercial strips in Michigan is like flipping through the Yellow Pages. But is that the image your community wants to present to the world? In order to be globally competitive and attractive to talented workers, communities must look good and function well.

Unfortunately, the reason so many commercial strips look so unattractive is because of so many signs that are often poorly maintained, badly located, too large, too tall, too bright, and/or have too many flashing lights.

This workshop is based on the Michigan Sign Regulation Guidebook created for Scenic Michigan by the MSU Planning and Zoning Center in 2012. A CD of the Guidebook will be provided to everyone who registers for the workshop

The 3.5 hour presentation includes hundreds of slides including good and bad examples of signs from around the state. In addition there will be exercises to work on with other participants at the workshop. Learn about:
  • Regulating digital signs and electronic message boards
  • Regulating billboards
  • Regulating temporary signs
  • Regulating political signs!
