After several conversations with Chagrin Falls Village officials, Valley Art Center has made the decision to voluntarily withdraw its zoning appeal pending before Village Council concerning two different applications for appeal. The village agreed to defer any enforcement action regarding the current mural until July 1, 2014. It is the intention of the Valley Art Center to ultimately replace the current mural with a new mural, unless village regulations would change prior to such date which would render the current mural acceptable to the village. details
