Graffiti removal program
My Fellow San Franciscans,
Last week, along with Public Works, and business and community leaders, we launched the City’s new courtesy graffiti abatement program for storefronts and other private properties in neighborhood commercial corridors.
The pilot program will work to relieve participating property owners of the financial burden of removing tags from their buildings, instead allowing professional Public Works crews or City contractors access to wipe out graffiti at zero cost to the effected property and business owners, and help small businesses and property owners facing the expense of removing unwanted graffiti that create an unwelcoming environment.
Prior to the infusion of extra funding for the two-year pilot to bring aboard a new six-person crew to staff the new operation, Public Works focused solely on removing graffiti from public property, such as sign posts and retaining walls, in the public right of way.
Under City law, private property owners are responsible for removing graffiti in a timely manner. Public Works inspectors respond to hundreds of graffiti complaints every year lodged through the City’s 311 customer service center.
Property and business owners interested in receiving a courtesy abatement should make a request through the 311 customer service center. The City will focus on removing graffiti that is on the exterior of properties visible from the public right of way. The pilot program will not include the restoration or repair of tagged murals, etched windows and windows defaced with acid. In addition, graffiti on properties that are under construction or being renovated are excluded from the program.
During the two-year pilot, Public Works will track whether the level of resources adequately meets the demand and the efficacy of the effort in reducing graffiti so the mayor and supervisors can determine next steps.
This graffiti abatement program is just one part of that effort but it will really help our neighborhoods and our City. As San Francisco continues our recovery efforts, it’s critical that we stay focused on keeping our city safe and clean, while also continue to support our small businesses to ensure they thrive.
