Absolutely not. Although the Indiana State statute that provides local governments with an option to create a Historic Preservation Commission allows for the review of paint color, the Lafayette Historic Preservation Ordinance (Ordinance 2010-11) specifically states the Commission shall not govern new paint color of previously painted materials. Unpainted materials like brick, however, should remain unpainted. The Commission does have the authority to review and approve the color of permanent materials like glass, anodized aluminum and masonry.
Please review the Historic Preservation Commission Ordinance.
