Graffiti is Everyone's Problem.
Graffiti is costly for taxpayers when it damages public property, and the cost of cleaning graffiti off of business property is passed on to the customer. Graffiti when unchecked can significantly impact the appearance of neighbourhoods and the quality of life in our community.
The City, through the Graffiti Hotline at (604) 233-3307, is taking the lead role in coordinating the reporting and removal of graffiti on both private and public properties. The City will remove graffiti from public property when it is reported.
In the case of private property the City regulates the upkeep of properties in the Unsightly Premises Regulation Bylaw No. 7162. See City Bylaws for more information or contact a Bylaw Assistant to report a problem on private property at (604) 276-4345.
How to Report Graffitti?
In addition to using the Report a Problem page, Graffiti can be reported through our Graffiti Hotline at (604) 233-3307.
