My in-laws live in Houston, TX, celebrated practitioner of the deed restriction – where committees set up rules for homemakers to place limitations on the property, usually to “maintain a desired look in a neighborhood.”
It seems that Monrovia, Liberia is attempting the same thing.
Per the Inquirer:
The Monrovia City Corporation (MCC), has asked residents of the city and all business entities to paint their houses.
The city government said such an exercise should have been carried out on or December 15, 2007 in accordance with City Ordinance Number one.
According to a release from the office of the Director of Information and Research at the MCC, violation fees will be imposed on anyone or business entity that will fail to comply.
