Don't we all have more important things to worry about? As a past board member of an HOA, I know firsthand how idiotic neighbors can get. In our neighborhood, we had a neighbor complain about a kid's lemonade stand, for pete's sake! Read story here. They claimed that they were running a business, which is against the rules within our gated community. Thankfully, our HOA quickly wrote an addendum to the rules, specifically saying that it was OK. Colorado, are you listening?
As a professional street painter and chalk artist for Amazing Street Painting, this story hits home. If it wasn't for chalk art/street painting, I wouldn't be able to travel the world chalking amazing art.

Any attempt to squash a child's artistic creativity should be discouraged. As director of the International Street Painting Society, my goal is to get chalk into as many kids' hands as possible, all over the world. CHALK ON!
