Phoenix Inn's parking-lot mural set for a redesign

Downtown's controversial Community mural will be redesigned and sent to the arts council's new mural committee for input and approval.

Judy Stafford of Cowichan Green Communities explained the planned revamp of Cyrus Genier's big artwork — painted last year without a city permit gained by the Phoenix Station Inn — will involve noted muralist Barrie Coté, CGC, plus inn owners.

Stafford expected the redesign by January's end.

The draft look will be presented to the Cowichan Valley Arts Council's mural committee for vetting, Stafford said.

Given all nods, including a city council permit, a fine-tuned or new mural could be repainted on the Phoenix's lot wall by Genier in around April.

Councillors ordered the mural removed as it flouted city graffiti and permit policies.
