Layton limits garish colors on the city's buildings

LAYTON (AP) -- Garish colors like hot pink and neon green will no longer be allowed on business buildings as the city strives for a more muted -- and consistent -- look.

Under a new ordinance, fluorescent and other bright colors will be allowed on no more than 5 percent of a business building's wall area. Such colors will be allowed only as accents.To ensure compliance with the new ordinance, passed last week, all architectural plans submitted to the city must give a color sample along with a list of building materials and exterior elevations.
