Session Information:

Billboards in Utah---Information for the Local Level
September 9, 2021 1:40 pm

Come listen to the story of billboards in Utah from a planner’s perspective – from Lady Bird Johnson’s 1965 highway beautification efforts to where we are today. In this session, a panel of seasoned public servants offers a compelling walk-through of Utah’s Outdoor Advertising Code, and the intricacies and impediments of the Code that matter most to planners and communities. Their presentation is designed as an open-source ‘toolkit’ for use at the local level, enabling planners to inform and educate their respective city and county councils, planning commissions, state representatives, chambers of commerce, and others about Utah’s billboard laws, and the impacts of those laws on their local planning and community development efforts.
