City of Pompano Beach.

The city of Pompano Beach, Florida, just doesn't want some colors around. The city has passed a law requiring businesses to paint their buildings in shades "traditional" to Florida's coastal areas. City commissioners admit they don't know exactly what that means. But they know what it doesn't mean: bright colors and chartreuse. They're pretty white, gray, beige, tan, brown, terra cotta, and peach will be allowed. But only light shades of pink. Light shades of blue and green are okay. Darker shades of blue and green, and colors such as mauve, yellow, red, gold, and black, will be permitted only for accents.
