OGDEN, Utah (AP) - As the city of Ogden has begun removing murals from the walls of downtown, some residents are balking at the removal of street art.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/2cMejZo ) that property owners and city officials have been moving to remove murals from the sides of buildings over some protest. The most recent removal was a vintage postcard-esque “Ogden, Utah” script that was painted over on Friday.

Resident Nick Jones is now working with the building’s new owners and city officials to bring the mural back. Jones co-owned the building’s former business.

Jones wrote code enforcement an email asking how he could obtain a permit for the mural, noting the building was vacant, but officials said the mural was considered a sign not art.
