So what does everyone think of the new lime green facade at El Vaquero in downtown Southern Pines? So far, I have heard quite a few "colorful" reactions- none of them terribly full of praise.
As far as I know, there is no ordinance that would apply to the color they paint their building. If they were across Bennett street, they'd be in the Historic District and have to choose from an approved palette.
Should there be rules on paint colors outside the Historic District?
If "no," is it because you think the color fits in with downtown Southern Pines?
If "yes," do we limit it to downtown? All commercial buildings? Homes?
