Lagrange and Troup County Update Ordinances

The Lagrange News reports that the Lagrange, GA and Troup County, GA are updating their sign ordinances to comply with Reed v Gilbert.   The changes include:

  • No permit is needed for a temporary sign.  A temporary sign is a sign which is in place for no more than 20 days once a quarter.
  • Sign height is being reduced from 35 feet to 25 feet.
  • Billboards will be allowed on I-85
  • No digital signs will be permitted on Troup County scenic roads (e.g. Salem Road, Dennis Smith Road and Salem-Chipley Road)

Insider’s take: Two more municipalities move away from a content-based sign code in order to avoid Reed v Gilbert problems.  Insider is amazed how many small towns still have codes which are our of compliance.
