Peachtree City drops paint rules

A proposed ordinance revision that would have restricted exterior housepaint colors in Peachtree City was unanimously rejected by the City Council on April 5.

The measure was intended to protect property values by not allowing “high-intensity” or fluorescent colors. City Manager Jon Rorie noted that only 23 percent of the city’s 200 subdivisions have homeowners associations, and some of the restrictive covenants that originally managed aesthetics have expired, resulting in complaints to the city government.

The council agreed that the colors question should be part of a larger conversation about code enforcement of other issues such as junk cars, overflowing garages and maintenance problems.
