Did you know that virtually every local government will have to rewrite their sign ordinances to be in compliance with the law? The Supreme Court issued a plethora of decisions big and small that require cities and counties to make lots of changes. ICMA University welcomes Lisa Soronen, executive director of the State and Local Legal Center, to discuss what you need to know about the recent Supreme Court Rulings and what you need to do to comply with them.

  • A cell phone tower case
  • A fair housing case
