Adams Outdoor Advertising applied for a permit to construct a new billboard on a right of way in the city of Holland. The city rejected the application saying that billboards were not permitted under two new sections of its zoning ordinance. Adams sued the city challenging the provisions as invalid under the Home Rule City Act and the City and Village Zoning Act.
