A mural at a local bakery that was deemed a county violation will now be permitted to stay up, according to the owner of the place.
Owner Mike McLellan told Altadena Patch that the county told him that they would keep the mural permitted as long as he agreed to stop sending emails, stop calling them, and stop pushing for others to innundate the county office with phone calls.
McLellan added though that there is some future risk for the mural as county permit officials told him that if it were to receive future complaints they might have to revisit the situation.
The 51 foot by 14 foot mural--which depicts desserts, coffee and other products found at a bakery--originally ran when officials told McLellan it could be construed as a sign advertising his store, which would be restricted under county code.
Last week, a that the decision was being reviewed.
Many Altadena residents signed a petition at the store to protect the mural, and many left comments on Patch, the Altadenablog and on local email groups, protesting the decision.
