The Springs Community Alliance (SCA)has hastily called a public meeting for Monday, July 27 to discuss the facade project that has ignited a growing controversy.
The bright colors and designs on several businesses, all by artist Rico Martin, have begun to suggest a signature look for the entire Highway 12 commercial strip. Many like the look, many do not.
Other opponents say the project should have been held to more scrutiny by the County.
The public meeting will be held Monday, July 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. in at Altimira Middle School. Scheduled to attend are Supervisor Susan Gorin; representatives from Permit Resources Management Department and the Community Development Commission; Rico Martin; and local business owners.
A review of the process and design guidelines will be followed by public comment and a panel discussion.
