Stephen Lytle, with the Southeast Seminole Heights Civic Association said he has spoken with several city officials and they are working to remedy the situation.
According to City Council Member Mike Suarez, the Neighborhood Empowerment head will find the money to repaint the mural.
"I had a pit in my stomach pretty quickly. This was a lot of work. It was 3 years worth of effort. It was an expensive project for our association that's a non-profit and it was an opportunity for us to really bring the community together," Lytle said.
