Everyone: Remove Or Cover Spray Paint Tags Immediately,
Tagging has increased dramatically in Bloomingdale in recent weeks. From my window alone near 1st and W, I've seen Flagler Market, Electric box, and just last night my neighbor's house.
PLEASE help paint over tags the minute you see them to show this kid it isn't worth his time in our neighborhood, because his tag disappears immediately.
I've spray painted the electric box and the neighboring house using primer for wood and metal. Someone from the neighborhood spoke to new Flagler Market owner who cleaned up his wall.
The city has service for removing tags, but do not take care of them as quickly as they should to discourage culprits.
To report graffiti, call 311 and give the operator location & description of the graffiti.
You can also call 311 to request a graffiti removal kit be delivered to your house.
If we all pitch in, the tagging should stop fairly soon---and I like the idea of this kid not getting gratification.
