Graffiti is a public nuisance that is destructive of the rights and values of property owners as well as the entire community. Unless action is taken to remove it, graffiti quickly spreads and entire neighborhoods are soon affected by this menace. City Ordinances mandate that property owners are responsible for keeping their property free from graffiti at all times.
The Office of Housing works to try and prevent the spread of graffiti and to assist in the removal of graffiti where necessary.
