The City’s graffiti abatement team removes graffiti from public property 6 days a week. Graffiti technicians make every effort to remove graffiti within 72 hours from receipt of the report, barring inclement weather. The City of Palmdale is committed to maintaining a graffiti-free community and has developed a variety of ways to fight graffiti including:
- An anti-graffiti ordinance
- A reward system for information about taggers
- Graffiti Hotline 94-PRIDE (947-7433) so citizens can report graffiti
- Online Graffiti Reporting
The Adopt-A-Wall program coordinates individual and groups of volunteers to conduct regular graffiti removal, and works with the community to reduce graffiti on both public and private property throughout Palmdale. Participants learn how to report suspicious activity and document and remove graffiti.
If you are interested in helping remove graffiti, you can sign up for the Adopt-A-Wall program. The program assists local residents who volunteer to remove graffiti in their neighborhood by providing them with free paint and materials. The City will provide proper color paint to volunteers. Participation in the Adopt-A-Wall program does not obligate the participant to respond every time their adopted area has graffiti, nor does it relieve the City of its responsibility to remove graffiti in adopted areas. For more information about the Adopt-A-Wall program, please call 661/267-5170.
Graffiti that occurs on private property, such as businesses or on multi-family or single family homes, are the responsibility of the property owner to remove.
