Graffiti Abatement Program (GAP)

The City’s GAP is responsible for abating graffiti on sidewalks, curbs, improved drainage easements and retaining walls. In addition, the GAP assists owners and tenants of private property with the abatement of graffiti and provision of abatement supplies. The GAP also proactively abates CPS Energy infrastructure including wooden poles, metal poles and towers.  

The City will provide free paint and supplies. City staff will assist with graffiti removal for elderly and disabled citizens upon request.
