BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A city of Melbourne board decided Thursday evening that a mural on the side of a building in the Eau Gallie Arts District should stay.
Melbourne leaders approved the project months ago but then decided it didn’t follow guidelines and appealed it.
Opponents and proponents packed City Hall Thursday to make their case. It’s up to the City Council to decide its next move.
Lisa Elaine owns a business across from the mural, and after speaking out against the design, the threats did not stop.
“I have increased security inside and outside my building,” she said “They’re throwing stuff at my windows at night.”
