City cannot regulate content but can regulate time place and manner to ensure that such signs are not dangerous or a traffic safety issue.
“ Thus, if City Council elected to allow an electronic message sign, City Council would have to allow these type signs for a certain area of the City or along certain roads as opposed to restriction the use of the signage in question to non-profits or institutional uses like a hospital.”

“ Except as provided for in this Subsection, no sign regulations will apply other than in the perimeter Commercial Areas where the sign regulations that are setforth in the Land Development Code, as from time to time modified, will apply. Under canopy signs in the Urban Core will be set back a minimum of five feet from the lot line. Neon signs will not be permitted except in the Urban Core where they will be permitted but only in connection with food and entertainment. Where permitted, Neon signs may move or vary in intensity and color but may not flash, rotate or flicker”
