Toledo Council tackling building colors - Another "important" city issue. "The bright palette of Mexico and other Latino cultures might have to be muted under a proposed set of standards for building facades in Toledo. Several buildings in the 1200 block of Broadway are painted in bright colors evocative of Mexico. The colorful storefronts favored by Mexican culture probably would not be permitted under the design standards as now written. The code could make an exception specifically for the Viva neighborhood." The timing of this article with the visit by Dr. Richard Florida at the Peristyle today is amazing. Dr. Florida discussed how communities can improve their economy by harnessing the creativity of everyone. He mentioned the three T's that a city needs: talent, technology, and tolerance.
