Getting permission for any exterior change to homes in any of the historic districts in Laredo is a long process and honestly, a pain in the butt. I won’t talk about my woes with trying to get all permissions and the lack of continuity from the historic board – let’s just say that I have been getting permissions for more than a year and my contractor is still hanging on.
But at what moment did the historic landmark board give permission to paint a Wawi sign directly on a building? Was this in the approved color palette? Is this approved material? And aren’t these signs supposed to have a time limit after an election of how long they can be up? Does Wawi even know?
I just have questions, no answers.
