On December 5, 2017, Mayor and Council adopted amendments to City of Tucson Sign Code, moved those regulations into the Unified Development Code (UDC), and set an effective date of February 1, 2018 with an 18 month sunset date.  The addition of the sunset date of August 31, 2019 was included so that staff could review the efficacy of the amendments.  On July 9, 2019, Mayor and Council extended the sunset date on Ordinance #11508 related to the Sign Code Revision Project, for 12 months from August 31, 2019 to August 31, 2020.
