Graffiti prevention and clean-up
If the graffiti is not cleaned, the city may issue a citation. Swing by the fire station or the Whittier Alliance office to pick up free graffiti removal products.
The Whittier Alliance also has funds available to help businesses prevent graffiti. Download the application to get started!
Report any graffiti on any property by calling 311, using the 311 app or online system.For details, see the city of Minneapolis website. A few tips:
- if you have a fence, consider storing extra paint of the same color for graffiti touch-ups.
- consider painting a mural on the exposed walls of your business. Research has shown that exteriors with murals are less likely to get hit by graffiti.
- plant a garden on your boulevard or around an electric box on your property – having a garden shows the property is cared for and graffiti might by removed quickly.
