Steve Craig’s Wolf Bldg. proposed mural

From Steven Wyble in the Nisqually Valley News:
“The Yelm Historic Commission is holding a special meeting 4 p.m. Aug. 6 at the Yelm City Hall conference room, 105 Yelm Ave. W., to discuss whether [Wolf building owner Steve] Craig should be granted a ‘certificate of appropriateness’ for the proposed mural [on his Wolf building’s wall]. The meeting is open to the public.
A certificate of appropriateness is necessary for additions or alterations to buildings on the Yelm Historical Register, according to a notice from the city.
Craig has provided a mock-up of the proposed mural, said Gary Carlson, the citys building official and staff to the historic commission. The commission will review the mock-up and determine its significance to the building, he said.”
This seems like a “no-brainer” to me, yet everything in this city’s politics are different here. A Yelm circa 1930’s home was set to be purchased and preserved by a local citizen in 2004, only to be purchased by another party who had it burned to the ground in a fire department exercise to build a duplex on the lot. The Yelm Historical Commission provided zero support in that case and now they have an issue about a mural being painted on the Wolf Building???
Where ARE their priorities.
Spare me the psycho-babble.
