Working with Councilman Matteo’s Office and the four precincts on Staten Island we plan to identify and prioritize tagged locations.
Where to Turn will coordinate weekly outings with volunteers alternating with the four precincts and paint over tagged sites.
We will also work with the mayor’s Community Affairs Unit to schedule regular visits to Staten Island from their Graffiti Free Team to sites identified by our local precincts. We will also be working with them to improve the accessibility of paint for cleanups.
