Graffiti Removal

What is the City doing to eliminate graffiti?

City of Pickering initiatives that address graffiti problems include:

  • implementing the Eyes on the Street reporting program
  • enforcing a Graffiti By-law
  • submitting graffiti inventories to the Durham Regional Police Service
  • experimenting with coatings and other materials to protect infrastructure from graffiti
  • liaising with community partners to advise when non-City owned properties are vandalized
  • increasing available space where graffiti art is acceptable (such as the Skateboard Park within Diana, Princess of Wales Park)
  • hosting a graffiti art competition
