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.
The task force meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at 9:00 a.m. at the Worthington Municipal Building.
