HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - During last night’s meeting, the Holland City Council approved an ordinance amendment to the city’s anti-graffiti laws that will allow non-profits such as ESCAPE Ministries to keep graffiti-like drawings on its building’s exterior walls. The work was done by at-risk youth in its programs. Council endorsed a planning commission definition of an allowable mural. However, the panel tabled a first reading of an ordinance amendment that would have led to reducing the number of unrelated adults living in rental units from six to four, wanting to review the matter further as to its viability in the Hope College off-campus areas, as well as implementing a timetable for the change. The issue is expected to be discussed again at next Wednesday’s work-study session.
