Mural Policy Development

Recent proposals for murals in Old Worthington have spurred a recognition that the City does not have a policy or guidelines in place for how proposals for murals should be considered. At the request of City Council, a task force has been convened to provide recommendations on policy options, which may include a process to consider murals or a decision to prohibit murals. City Council may then direct staff and the Code Review Committee to draft regulations based on recommendations framed by the task force.

We welcome community input and feedback as this process moves forward. For more information, contact the Planning and Building Department at email or call 614-431-2424.
