In order to ensure murals are not used as signs the Montross Town Council tasked the Planning Com- mission with creating a draft mural ordinance. The Montross Town Council ac- cepted recommendations from the planning commission at their March 22 meeting. The ordinance must go through a public hearing and then a council vote before it becomes law. The public hearing will be held the night of the regular council meeting which is set for 7 p.m. April 26. The objectives, of the draft ordi- nance are to encourage the design of private murals for public display that promote or enhance the char- acter of the town, differentiate be- tween signs, graffiti and murals and prevent visual expression that may be offensive, is of a political nature or is derogatory. The draft ordinance defines a mu- ral as a picture, especially a large one, painted directly on a wall or ceiling or a large photograph or can- vas attached directly to a wall. Two types of murals are identified in the ordinance, both are described as original one-of-a-kind, unique designs or representations. Type 1 does not contain promotional or commercial advertising painted or drawn on the wall. Type 2 contains limited referenc- es to the establishment, product or service provided on the site where the mural is located. If passed the ordinance will re- quire citizens who wish to create a mural on their property to apply for a determination from officials Artists Melanie Stimmell and Anat Ronen created many of the murals work last year. whether the mural fits into type 1 continue installing their mural. or type 2.

Citizens interested in making com- ments at the public hearing should review a copy of the draft ordinance before the public hearing. Town hall is located at 15869 Kings Highway.
