The City is considering a Mural Ordinance. It has been approved by the City's
Planning and Land Use Committee. Several Neighborhood Councils have weighed in
with Community Impact Statements
KCET, in the last decade art has been categorized as signage, causing
conflicting enforcement by multiple departments and the end of many mural
developments and productions. The recommended revision will have existing murals
listed on the Department of Cultural Affairs database grandfathered in as
registered. Murals that did not go through an approval process will be offered a
6-month amnesty period to be registered.
Read the Council File on the Mural Ordinance.
