City Council Expands Mural Allowances After Student Request

At last night’s Bend City Council meeting, the council voted to amend the Bend City Code to allow murals to be painted across the city, an idea first pitched to them by a group of local 5th graders.

The students from Elk Meadow Elementary wanted permission to paint a mural on a retention wall near their school, but the city only allowed for murals to be painted on businesses in the Makers District.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan spoke with one city counselor about why the chose to expand the program to allow murals across the City of Bend.
