City of Glendale, CA window regulations

Hi everyone! My husband and I are in the process of a total home remodel. We are trying to upgrade our windows and found out that since we have an existing flush-mount window, we have to replace it the same way and cannot add trim. Has anyone run into something like this? I haven't had a chance to talk to the city planner again, but is there any way around this? They also said we have to keep the ugly wood paneling on the outside of the home, too!

**More info**
If we were what I perceived to be a historical neighborhood, I would totally understand. But our house just looks like a 1960's california bungalow. And all the homes in and around our area are different. In fact, the house right next to us is completely remodeled and modern! I feel like there is nothing to preserve!!! Very aggravating.

Yes cities which are trying to preserve architectural features can be a real pain in the ass.

Everything I've heard about trying to build or remodel in Southern California.... well... just be prepared for a lot of disappointment and money.
