The City of San Juan Capistrano has scheduled a hearing about the Capistrano Trading Post mural installation before the Planning Commission. The hearing will occur at 5:00 PM on May 24, 2023, at 31421 La Matanza Street, San Juan Capistrano, CA.
I invite you to attend, or phone into the meeting, to speak in favor of this mural installation. It would be the first major public art installation by TASJA and will complement the coming renovation of Arguello Way. This is a very important step in our goal of placing public art in San Juan and I hope you can support it in your own voice. With the Planning Commission's approval, it does not need to go to City Council, so we could then proceed with the project.
The Planning Commission does not get to judge the artwork, only the location and the principal considerations will be to get a variance for size (180 sq ft vs 48 in the mural policy) and height (20 ft vs 15 ft). If you have not seen the actual image of the proposed mural, please let me know, and I will send one to you.
