ORS 377.763
Consolidation of relocation credits

The owner of a relocation credit may combine relocation credits for outdoor advertising signs that have 249 square feet or less of display surface on one side to form a single relocation credit. After the relocation credits are combined, the Department of Transportation shall cancel the smaller relocation credits used to create the combined relocation credit. The first time an owner uses a combined relocation credit, the combined relocation credit is not restricted by the provisions of ORS 377.767 (Relocation of existing outdoor advertising sign) (4). [2009 c.463 §4]
Note: See note under 377.759 (Issuance of relocation credits for removal of outdoor advertising signs from scenic byway).
§§ 377.700 to 377.840

Notes of Decisions

Exclusion of on-premises signs from regulation as outdoor advertising signs is not content-based discrimination against noncommercial speech. Outdoor Media Dimensions, Inc. v. State of Oregon, 150 Or App 106, 945 P2d 614 (1997), aff'd 331 Or 634, 20 P3d 180 (2001)

Imposition of content-neutral regulatory requirements does not infringe on protected speech. Outdoor Media Dimensions v. Department of Transportation, 340 Or 275, 132 P3d 5 (2006)
