City Council Passes Sign Code Revisions

The Mayor and Tucson City Council this week voted to accept proposals to revise, simplify, and modernize the City's sign code (Regular Agenda, Item 8). It's the first significant update to the code since 1985. 

The changes were initiated by Mayor and Council and will bring Tucson in compliance with a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision and respond to local concerns about the code being out of date and difficult to use.

Over the past year, revisions have been reviewed extensively by the Citizen Sign Code Committee, the Planning Commission, and stakeholders from the business community, sign code industry, and neighborhoods.
