WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Town of Burgaw held a public input session Tuesday, March 28, to help create a set of rules to apply to all proposed murals in the town.

The meeting was primarily held to clarify the language in the ordinance. The town’s planning director, Gilbert Combs, says the board was glad the community came to share their thoughts.

“We’re allowing the public to help develop some of the mural ordinance language to really ensure that the stakeholders of the town are able to be satisfied with what is being proposed and brought before the board,” Combs said.

A mural in Burgaw came down last year for a building remodel, and it could not go back up because it was set on planks of wood and not the building’s wall. The town wants to define what exactly a mural is and set guidelines.

The board will meet again on April 11 to continue the discussion. You can share your thoughts in an online survey here.
