Unfortunately there are no legal design standards that they will have to abide by. The overlay only goes into effect when you are building new or tearing down 50% of the building or expanding.

They think the lodge design is creative and visionary? It is hideous. I hope they don't sidestep the Design Review Board on this one. We can't let them destroy a landmark building by adding a log cabin to it.
Matthew should be commended for doing the right thing. Shane Trice is a piece of shit and needs to go down. He's trying to claim that his civil rights have been violated.
