Freedom of decoration

Finally, a business-building owner decides to paint his building with a festive flair and immediately he’s admonished for attempting to bring a little life to a complex that had about as much excitement as a snowdrift. The Springhill Village Center looks wonderful. I even drive down a little further on East Main just to look at it before heading over to Ridge.

A “Mexican McDonalds”? Is that derogatory or the tongue speaking before a mind? In an area where the accepted Community Development Department colors are sand dune tan, dirt brown, fog gray and stale milk white, it is refreshing to see some vibrant color combinations; I hope it’s the start of a trend.

Also, Mr. Heckel [community development director], you said some people may like it, but it does have a different perspective. How does an it have a perspective?
