The City's Graffiti Abatement Program supports neighborhood livability and safety by decreasing graffiti, with a goal of discouraging vandalism citywide. Currently, the City's graffiti removal program operates from Monday through Friday. In early July, the Department of Public Works will be activating a weekend graffiti removal program, as an additional measure to rid the City of graffiti. The challenge of keeping the City graffiti free is an ongoing effort. As the City increases its efforts, your participation in the fight against graffiti is essential.
With over 125 miles of City streets to maintain, the Department of Public Works invites you to be their "eyes and ears." If you see graffiti in your area report it as soon as it is noted. The longer graffiti stays up, the more likely the area will be vandalized again.
Graffiti is not only unattractive, it lowers property values and encourages other crimes. This is why our program offers residents a no-cost graffiti removal service.
