I think it's kind of cool. Curious how it violates a county ordinance or town ordinance or whatever it is.

Amazing. (not really)
Not really. Magistrate code enforcement judges work for the same people code enforcement does. Most places you get a free appeal to a higher court since they are assumed to be biased in favor of the the city(their employer).

The laws as they are trying to enforce them just aren't constitutional, you can't regulate art on this level. It's called censorship. Under their definition of a sign anyone redoing their lawn who's landscaper puts a sign in the yard and then posts pictures of it online is guilty of an offense. That's b.s. Hell they actually removed the sign in the yard and the city is maintaining that because the artist charges money and has a website with pictures of a similar style the art itself is a sign. Like I said before this city is going to lose badly on appeal where constitutional issues are handled

For those worried about it impacting property values, it really depends on where you live.

There was a brownstone that was painted something hideous and then was referred to as the Pepto Bismal house. https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/bro...-101912-179050

It didn't affect property values at all.

I agree, the wall/fence is just too much.

Wow. that house is BAD !! Something Hippies would have lived in back in the 60's. The weird part is, that couple look like fairly normal people in that picture of them. Gotta be a screw loose somewhere though.

WOW !

I have to agree. They should exercise their freedom but the house is rather ugly.

Um... Your link has no pic and doesn't even state the HOA (is there one?) rules.

As I understand, there is no HOA involved in this case. Just the homeowner and the city.

Default Update

Looks like the homeowners have finally emerged victorious in their fight with city council.

There is a reason the original painting is relatively small.

This is too much of a "good thing".
