Advertisements visible to, and intended to be visible to, the outdoor traveling public are subject to regulation under the Georgia Outdoor Advertising Control Act, even where they are physically located inside of a building.  Further, LED signs with changing messages are subject to regulation because, while they are not strictly covered under the statutory definition of “multiple message signs,” the legislature’s amendment of the code section that regulates multiple message signs to specifically include LED signs evidenced its clear intent to regulate LED signs with changing messages as multiple message signs.
