To All,

As you know we have been working with the NYPD, the CAU and the Borough President’s Office in attempt to clean up graffiti on Staten Island.

This effort has been extremely successful and we have gotten support from the courts (both Criminal and Family) student volunteers as well as some community and civic groups.

One of our biggest problems has been construction sites that do not remove graffiti from the boards that they put up at the sites.

We have repeatedly gone to some sites but remember we can only clean up graffiti where we have permission in the form of a signed waiver.

Many sites have not provided these waivers and the graffiti remains.

The problem now has gotten worse.

Take a look at the photos below taken at a construction site at Richmond Ave and Independence.

The builders are putting up construction boards with graffiti already on them.

Needless to say they are just adding to the problem and something needs to be done.

We have enough trouble staying on top of all the taggers we do not need builders adding to the problem.

Hopefully someone will crack down on these builders.

Dennis

P.S. They weather yesterday prevented this week’s cleanup but we will be back out next week
