Legal Considerations in Sign-Code Development

Alan Weinstein serves on the Board of Directors of both the Academic Advisory Council for Signage Research and Education (AACSRE) and the Foundation for the Advancement of the Sign Industry (FASI), and he was a three-time presenter at the American Planning Association’s 2017 National Planning Conference.

A professor at Cleveland State University’s Marshall College of Law and the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs, Weinstein wrote an article for AACSRE’s 2017 Interdisciplinary Journal of Signage and Wayfinding, entitled “Legal Considerations in Sign Code Development.” Most of the article assesses the ramifications of the 2015 Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision, Reed v. Town of Gilbert, Ariz, which primarily addresses content neutrality. To read the entire article in the Journal, go to
