Ten Steps To A Graffiti-Free City 3/22/13 | March 22, 2013


  • To become a graffiti volunteer, you were required to attend a three-hour class, held once a month, only on Saturday.  The class covered the history of graffiti, how to remove graffiti with solvent, how to paint over graffiti and my favorite…how to operate our power washer – which no one was ever allowed to borrow or use anyway.
  • There were a total of 124 on-going graffiti volunteers.
  • Staff organized group graffiti paint-outs every Saturday.  Members of these groups did not do any additional graffiti removal throughout the rest of the year.
  • Staff would go to community meetings to tell the group about the Anti-Graffiti Program and to recruit volunteers.  They would usually go first on the agenda to explain the program and tell them about the three-hour class they needed to take to volunteer.  They would ask for volunteers, give each a business card, and tell them to “call me at the office and I will tell you when the next class is and sign you up for it”.
