From Sat Mar 15, 2008 3:00 am to Tue Mar 18, 2008 2:59 am (included)
|We went out to finish up Boulder Creek today and the site that won’t go away continued to be a problem. We were able to remove all of the graffiti but when we went to hook of the power washer we realized that the new owners had turned of the water to repair plumbing.
Hopefully the rain tonight will do the job.
Two other sites are completed:
1 West Cedarview Ave
We are going out tomorrow to hit a few other sites. Anyone interested can give us a call at 718-966-6531.
We also spoke with the directors of the New Springfield Little League and we are going to arrange a total cleanup for either next Saturday or the following weekend.
Hopefully we will have obtained a supply of paint from the Mayor’s office by that time.
I received a message from the student life office of CSI and they want to assist our program.
We are still hoping to hear from SIBOR, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the SIEDC to help us get waivers for the many abandoned buildings that are covered in graffiti.
We sent out the Graffiti Hurts Teacher Guide as well as the Changing the Face of Staten Island hand out to all the public (PS) schools on Staten Island.
