Fighting Graffiti: An Investigation of Causes and Solutions

Published Date







Beginning in the summer of 2005 and into the following winter, the Standish-Ericsson Neighborhood Association (SENA) received a number of complaints related to graffiti. In most cases, concerned residents had been vandalized and subsequently took note of the extent of graffiti in the area. To address the problem, SENA formed a Graffiti Task Force in March, 2006. Initial meetings were dedicated to brainstorming potential solutions and gathering information. This report investigates the extent of the problem, and provides direction for future resident and SENA action addressing graffiti.
