COUNCILWOMAN WENDY GREUEL, LAPD, NEIGHBHORHOOD GROUPS KICK-OFF ANTI-GRAFFITI PROGRAM
Councilwoman Greuel and city agencies to train local residents to fight graffiti
(LOS ANGELES) - As part of her anti-graffiti campaign, Councilwoman Wendy Greuel will sponsor an "Adopt-A-Wall" training session designed to help local residents take action against graffiti in their neighborhoods by adopting a graffiti hotspot on Wednesday, June 6th, at 6:30 PM at Viva Gallery, 13261 Moorpark St, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.
In 2007, there has been a nearly 300% increase in graffiti removed in Council District 2, when compared with last year. Through the "adopt-a-wall" program, community groups can take responsibility for keeping a local hotspot graffiti-free by:
· Painting out: Volunteer groups will receive supplies and training from City agencies in order to continually paint over graffiti.
· Vining: The City plant vines to cover a targeted wall and the community group commits to caring for the plants.
· Creating Murals: The interested community group sponsors a mural.
The "Adopt-A-Wall" program was introduced by Councilwoman Greuel, at a public safety town hall meeting she hosted to improve public safety by expanding neighborhood empowerment.
