In some areas traffic signal poles, control boxes and fire hydrants are a target for graffiti vandals. With your help, we can clear the graffiti and keep our City clean. The City is providing paint to neighborhood organizations, registered block clubs, and other volunteers who are interested in covering graffiti.
Through the Graffiti Paint-Over program, participants can obtain the paint needed to cover graffiti on yellow traffic signal poles, green and brown traffic signal control boxes, and red fire hydrants.
