The Los Angeles City Planning Commission declined to approve a new ordinance to permit the legal creation of murals on certain buildings Thursday.
The commission pushed consideration back to Sept. 13.
Vetted in public meetings this winter, the new ordinance would allow owners of residential buildings of five units or more to host murals.
Commission members apparently divided on Thursday over whether the five unit minimum penalized owners of smaller buildings.
The law would make it legal to create murals for the first time in about ten years.
