Graffiti reduces neighborhood property values and business activity. It also encourages other acts of vandalism, and impacts the beauty and quality of life in our community.
The swift removal of graffiti is a key deterrent. The City Council has adopted a new Graffiti Ordinance.
Please remove graffiti as soon as possible after it appears. To report the existence of graffiti in public and private properties or request graffiti removal assistance, contact the Public Works Department at (408) 615-3080 or fill out an online service request form.
