Aesthetics. Footnote 112, in White House Vigil


[112] In Metromedia, Inc. v. City of San Diego (1981), the Court struck down a municipal ordinance which prohibited outdoor billboards. All of the Justices agreed, however, that purely aesthetic considerations may justify restrictions on speech.

Also note that this is commercial speech for the most part. A restriction on "manner".
Note the word may.
