Plan Review Process

Scrap by Bruce OrrPlanning and Zoning staff reviews all Mural Permit applications. In limited cases, structural review may be required. 

Before a mural permit can be issued, the applicant must hold a neighborhood meeting on the proposed mural. Notice of the neighborhood meeting must be posted on the site at least 21 days prior to the date of the meeting. 

You must send a letter to the neighborhood association and district coalition with information about the mural and the neighborhood meeting at least 21 days before the meeting. You may use the Mural Application Neighborhood Contact Letter. The contact information for the neighborhood association and district coalition may be found at the Office of Community & Civic Life. Email the letter and proof of mailing provided by the Post Office to Doug Strickler.

After the meeting, the mural permit may be issued. Contact Doug Strickler or Kristin Cooper to notify them that the meeting has taken place.
