Graffiti is the illegal defacing of property by painting or otherwise marking it with words, pictures or symbols. The majority of graffiti involves "tags," which are personalized signatures painted on mailboxes, hydro poles, bridges or walls.
Graffiti has a negative effect on our community in many ways. It contributes to reduced property values, a decline in commercial sales, increased crime rates in effected areas, wasted tax dollars for clean-up, and decreased use and enjoyment of public facilities. It diminishes citizens' feelings of safety and security.
