The ordinance prohibited murals on single-family residences.

This week, the Planning and Land Use Management Committee recommended an ordinance to allow murals on single-family residences in Council Districts 1, 9 and 14, as well as on exterior building openings and on roll-down security doors on commercial or industrial buildings. The matter is scheduled for a full Council vote next week on November 27, 2013.
