Where to Turn and Staten Island Community Leaders will introduce the “Changing the Face of Staten Island” Graffiti Removal Program.
This program will incorporate the 4E Model of Graffiti Management
It will call upon our local schools, community, civic and business organizations as well as elected officials to help us formalize and implement this plan to support the graffiti removal efforts of the Borough President and the Mayor by involving students and community volunteers.
It will also attempt to get parents more actively involved by making them more aware of the tell tale signs if their children are possible offenders.
If implemented we feel that this coordinated effort with the NYPD and the District Attorney’s Office will be a major first step in addressing the growing graffiti problem on Staten Island,
