    The Sign drama at the Mini Cooper Store is another continuing example of the Ignorance the City of Louisville displays concerning Design vs, Sign issues and regulations…..What a waste of time and effort harassing the owner over something so stupid.
    They should be giving Mr. Peterson an award for the commitment he made to the community building such a beautifully designed structure.
    What would Mr Ruff do if he didn’t have someone to “F” with over stupid issues like this time after time after time!!!….It’s been going on for over 20 years! Remember the Piano at the Entertainment Complex downtown at 2nd & Liberty, O’Malleys Corner,the local guys who pioneered the Entertainment Downtown were made to remove and dismantle it!….and NOW we have BATS, and Huge Guitar signs of the same “Nature” existing blocks away! from that site . ….Remember the grief they gave the guy with the FISH out on Dixie Hwy?….Oh Yea and what about the Palm Trees out on Preston?
    The City needs to really use some COMMON SENSE before causing local Business interference & harrassment over something as stupid as this…JMHO
