Neighborhood graffiti fighters, training available

One of the best skills a neighborhood group can develop is graffiti fighting.

Now the city is offering an opportunity to advance those skills with a new graffiti removal training.

The city has teamed up with Glidden Professional, a power washer company, to host a graffiti removal training session on Saturday, July 13 from 9-10 a.m. in the parking lot of the City’s Neighborhood Preservation Division, 4900 Swope Parkway.

According to the city, registered neighborhood groups will learn how to properly use graffiti removal chemicals and power washers to support the city’s Neighborhood Graffiti Abatement Program. Staff will provide a live demonstration of this equipment and allow neighborhood groups to practice using it. Informational materials on graffiti and the proper use of graffiti removal chemical and power washers will be distributed.

The city last year bought 10 power washers and graffiti removal chemicals that registered neighborhood groups may rent and use free of charge to remove graffiti.

Neighborhood groups do not need to sign up to participate in the training.


The Neighborhood Graffiti Abatement Program is an initiative of the City’s Gateway Crimes Task Force.
