  • Let the DCBA know ( if you have a surveillance camera. Surveillance videos and photos can help determine who the vandals are and when they are striking. We will pass this info onto a local group of volunteers that is working with law enforcement to try to stop graffiti in the neighborhood. They are trying to document graffiti, raise awareness, and share ideas on how to address it. Please help them help our neighborhood graffiti free.

  • Consider anti-graffiti paint - a clear coat of paint that prevents graffiti from getting absorbed into building paint. Makes cleanup much easier!
