A June 12th article from Pawleys Island's Coastal Observer is entitled, "Design code: Red brick, yes. Brick red paint, no."
Nexsen Pruet Real Estate attorney Franklin Daniels appeared before the Georgetown County Board of Appeals on behalf of local favorite, Frank's Restaurant, regarding a design code appeal involving painting the existing brick, brick red. Attorney David Slough researched the case law, prepared the application and argument for the appeal hearing.
An excerpt from the news coverage:
"Franklin Daniels of the Nexsen Pruet law firm outlined for board members how the McClary’s request met the four criteria for a variance..."
Sensing the board members wavering, Daniels pressed them to make a decision. “Don’t pass the buck,” he said. “A variance, by its nature, will be something different. This puts us in an uncomfortable position. If we wanted purple that would be different.”
[Amy] Brandon quoted a Southern Living magazine article praising Frank’s in an attempt to justify the variance. Finally, all the board members capitulated. The vote to allow the red brick wall was 7-0."
