Reed vs. Town of Gilbert, AZ
We make it our job to know how rulings on zoning and land use laws at the local and federal level impact our daily work. This summer a small church in the small town of Gilbert, AZ made some big waves on the national level that will change how communities regulate signage. In June, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that communities must treat content on all signs the same. While the full impact of this ruling is yet to be known, we are working with our public sector clients to ensure that their codes comply with court's decision. Our private sector clients may see less leniency for signage in some areas while others may see more leniency. Read more about this ruling here.
Landform facilitated the Task Force coordination, development of parcel concepts and developer feedback on parcel goals. A fast-paced investigative project was in order to give the Task Force the tools they needed to make long-term development recommendations for the site to the Wabasha City Council. Read more.
