Graffiti Busters

The BHNA Board, the Graffiti Busters volunteers, and your neighbors all thank you very much for helping to preserve the charm and safety of our neighborhood by promptly removing tags you find on your property and reporting those you see on public facilities in the neighborhood!
The BHNA would value 1 volunteer hour per month to assist with with:
  • Surveying, logging and photographing the neighborhood for tags/graffiti
  • Reporting this info to our Graffiti Coordinator
  • A cell phone with camera or digital camera is needed

Please contact the BHNA Graffiti Coordinator if you would like to help out. Even 1 hour a month would be helpful and appreciated!

You can help clean up our neighborhood, reduce crime, and demonstrate neighborhood pride.

There are proven links between graffiti and increased crime in a neighborhood. When graffiti and tagging appears and is not removed, often more crime and gang activity follows. It appears to criminals that residents don't care about their neighborhood and that makes it an easy target.

Addressing the tagging epidemic is just one way we can help improve the safety and livability in our neighborhood. Your involvement IS significant:

  • Report the location of tags and graffiti when you see them, email bhnagraffiti@gmail.com
  • Volunteer to clean up or paint over tags, we have clean-up kits available.
  • Call 9-1-1 if you witness tagging in progress.
  • Pay your voluntary annual membership dues http://www.bhna.org/programs/membership.
  • Donate supplies to refill the clean-up kits.
  • Get involved with our BHNA Block Watch program. For details <bhna.506.blockwatch@gmail.com.
