Roll-down gates or roll-up doors, are under scrutinity from the department of buildings.  A few years ago, the City Council passed a resolution requiring all storefront shutters, mesh gates, open air shutters, coiling grille gates, coil-up doors and roller gates to have 70% or more in visibility.  The code is forever changing our city's landscape.  We feel it is upgrading the city's look to one that favors a safer and more business friendly environment.
