Professor Weinstein Presents at Webinar for American Planning Association and is Selected to Serve on APA’s Planning Committee

On Thursday, July 30, Professor Alan Weinstein was one  of two presenters for a national webinar, “Reed v. Town of Gilbert: The Supreme Court’s New Rules for Temporary — and other — Signs,” presented by the Chapters & Divisions Consortium of the American Planning Association.  He discussed the effect on local sign regulations of the Reed decision, how cities can respond to ensure their sign codes could withstand a legal challenge, and noted the significant unresolved questions raised by apparent conflicts between Justice Thomas’s majority opinion and Justice Alito’s concurrence. More than 750 local government planners, city attorneys, and elected officials logged into the webinar.

Professor Weinstein has also been selected by the American Planning Association to serve on a panel of legal experts who will review and select the planning law sessions for the annual Alfred Bettman Legal Symposium at the 2016 APA National Conference in Phoenix.
