Billboards and Sign Control
A community with too many signs, signs that are too large, have too much motion, too many flashing lights, are in poor locations, are too small to read, or are so large they are overpowering, is a community that not only functions poorly (there is too much clutter, making wayfinding, instruction and identification difficult), but also looks bad.

Scenic Michigan is interested in helping local communities developing sign ordinances that enhance community aesthetics and protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents.
