After a call we made a visit to the New Springfield Little League (see pictures below) and have made arrangements to schedule a cleanup in March prior to the opening of their season. This is just a small piece of the damage done to the location.

We will also be doing a cleanup at Boulder Creek next Saturday with Councilman Oddo’s Office

We will be following these up with cleanups previously mentioned.

We have received feedback and representatives from some our local precincts as well as the District Attorney’s Office will attend our press conference on Friday at 4:30.

We will also have representation from some of our community boards and Councilman Oddo has said that he will try to attend. We will be reaching out to our local schools to see we can get representation from them as well.

The following topics will be covered.

Discussion of how students can get involved in cleanups and receive community service credit. Also how students can get community service credit by identifying locations and obtaining waivers.

Discussion of our mral project which will be accepting mural designs from local school and art groups and provide $500-$1,000 stipens to have murals painted at selected locations.

Sign up sheets and parental consent forms will be available.

Outreach to schools to create graffiti free zones around their schools.

How people can request a cleanup.

Efforts being made by the NYPD and the DA’s Office to arrest and prosecute offenders to the fullest.

How senior citizens can apply for reimbursement for graffiti removal costs from NYS Crime Victims.

Appeal to local elected officials to get paint supplies stored at the Staten Island Department of Sanitation facility.

Appeal to the Department of Sanitation to issue fines to locations that do not provide waivers for cleanups.

Appeal to the Department of Sanitation to hold realtors responsible to obtain waivers for unoccupied buildings.

Appeal to the Mayor’s Graffiti Task Force to simplify the process to obtain paint and supplies to do cleanups.

Appeal to the SIEDC and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce to help coordinate cleanups with their members.

Appeal to local elected officials and community organizations to commit to at least one full cleanup with their staffs.

We will also be providing information as to how parents can become more aware of tell tale signs if their children are offenders.

We will also be making people aware of a non toxic product that will remove graffiti from almost all surfaces (even vinyl fences)

Location of the press conference will be announced on Tuesday based on weather forecast and response.

Hopefully you will join us as this is a quality of life issue that is getting out of hand.

Dennis

P.S. We will be reaching out to Lowes and Home Depot to see if they would provide additional equipment so that we will be able to bigger jobs in less time.
