|What is graffiti?
||Graffiti means any drawing, inscription, writing or other mark that disfigures or defaces any building, accessory building, fence or other structure, however made or otherwise affixed.
|The most effective way to prevent graffiti is to remove it promptly. Studies show that removal within 24 to 48 hours results in a nearly zero rate of reoccurrence.
The Anti-Graffiti Paint Program encourages citizens to help reduce graffiti vandalism by REPORTING IT, RECORDING IT and/or REMOVING IT.
Homeowners, business owners and privately owned facilities can apply to the City of Prince Albert to receive one FREE Paint Kit (one gallon of paint, plastic gloves, one tray and one brush/roller), allowing the individual to paint over graffiti located on exterior surfaces of their private property.
PLEASE NOTE: Painting over graffiti can only be undertaken on your own personal property. Residents are not permitted to paint over graffiti on a neighbouring property, public bench or community facility. Proof of address of the applicant (e.g. water bill or tax notice) will be required when applying for the program.
