The councilmembers, after hearing from some of the city's finest muralists, issued the following recommendations:
3) Instruct the CAO, Department of Cultural Affairs, and other city departments to identify contractual personnel, staff, and any other costs associated with implementing the city’s mural permitting, enforcement and maintenance program. Comes back to another joint Arts/PLUM committee meeting.
The joint committee also asked the Cultural Affairs and Planning departments to develop a process to install fine art murals on private property and considered and to grandfather murals at least five years old.
At issue is a May 2002 ordinance approved by the City Council that amended regulations governing prohibited signs to include Supergraphic Signs, Inflatable Devices and Murals Signs. The City Council is crafting an ordinance, consistent with the First Amendment, that permits fine art murals on private property, and thus restores Los Angeles as the "mural capital of the world."
The presentation below is the result of ongoing meetings with muralists, art organizations and other stakeholders.
