Aesthetics spur possible shutter ban

November 19, 2008 12:40PM

Palm Beach’s Town Council and the Architectural Review Commission have
proposed an ordinance that would require that shutters remain off and
awnings remain
down in mixed-use zones unless a storm threatens the area. Shuttered
windows and bare awning frames could discourage shoppers, they
say. The town is drafting the ordinance and could vote on it as early
as December.
