The United States Sign Council Foundation (USSCF; Bristol, PA) announced the USSCF Sign Defense Fund (formerly the Legal Defense Fund). The new Sign Defense Fund is designed to help sign companies and sign owners combat defective and unconstitutional local sign zoning ordinances, according the the USSCF. Decisions about on-premise signs are made on a daily basis in all parts of the US, with little or no legal oversight. The Foundation strives to advocate at the local level by assisting with legal challenges and appeals of merit.
The goal of the Sign Defense Fund is to fund sign applications and appeals that face regulatory challenges due to deficient or unconstitutional sign zoning rules, quoting the USSCF. Sign companies and others may apply to the USSCF for a grant to be used in requesting special zoning relief or challenging a local sign code. Applicants don’t have to be a sign company, but all must be USSC Foundation Supporting Members. Grants will range from $1,000 to $5,000. The USSCF is especially interested in hearing about sign codes, cases and applications that involve content control and content discrimination.
