Revised Fountain Hills Sign Ordinance Pending Update

In conjunction with the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce, the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS® is seeking to amend a sign ordinance change passed by the Fountain Hills Town Council on May 18, 2021.

By a vote of four to three, Council approved revisions to make its ordinance compliant with a 2015 Supreme Court ruling in the Reed v. Town of Gilbert sign code case.

While the majority of these revisions were simply a matter of recategorizing or regrouping sign types, the biggest change was a late addition to prohibit the display of any signs within the Town’s right-of-way. This met with an outcry from local businesses.

Enforcement has been temporarily delayed, but the revised ordinance is posted here.
