Rally to save Atascadero tree mural
June 29, 2012
Atascadero’s Design Review Committee has asked the owners of the ARTery to paint over the mural or pay $460 to appeal the committees’ decision.
In 2010, the city unsuccessfully attempted to ban a mural on K-Man Cycle & Run. At the time, the City Council refused to design a mural ordinance separate from a sign ordinance.
Atascadero’s Municipal Code defines signs as objects designed to advertise, announce the purpose of, or identify the purpose of a person or entity, or to communicate information of any kind to the public. It however, provides an exception for decorative or architectural features of buildings.
