Question description

The city of Anytown, Florida, enacts a city zoning ordinance that prohibits outdoor advertising display signs, which includes neon signs and billboards, because it is concerned about traffic safety and aesthetics.

Billboards R Us sues the city of Anytown alleging that the zoning ordinance is unconstitutional.
