Tips and resources for graffiti removal and prevention:

  1. Many cities use their Department of Public Works employees as they can address the issue quickly.
  1. Quicker removal of graffiti leads to less new graffiti because the people who spray paint buildings want it displayed for a long time and are less likely to damage buildings when it is covered quickly.
  1. Murals painted are less likely to be vandalized. You should consider working with your cultural arts people to create the murals as that action involves more members of the community into the Clean Communities partnership.
