Neighborhood Homes

Tamara Shreeve ASKED

Does anyone have any local programs, ordinances or regulations that would encompass the situation of a homeowner in a non-HOA community painting their garage/home dramatically different from a neighborhood standard?   For example, a homeowner creates large graffiti-like renderings on their garage and door.  From the homeowner’s perceptive, it could be viewed as “freedom of speech,” but from the neighbors perspective it could be perceived as reducing neighborhood standards, and impacting the economic value of nearby residences.
