Downtown Mural Promoting Farmers' Market Needs Permit From City


The next in a series of planned murals for downtown Springfield is on hold… because City Hall is now requiring a zoning change before it can proceed.

 

The mural was intended to promote the downtown farmers’ market, which runs from May to October.

 

But city officials say that makes it a sign, not just a work of art, and therefore requires a zoning variance.

 

Because it could take weeks to get that approved, the State Journal-Register reports that work on the mural will most likely be pushed back to next spring.
