One of the realities of living in any urban area is graffiti. This has been true for thousands of years, unfortunately. And therefore one of the very useful free services that we offer to all merchants, businesses, and property owners in the Lower Polk Community Business District is graffiti removal and abatement. Not only can we remove (or in some cases paint over) “painted” graffiti and “marker” graffiti, but we also have the ability to polish out “acid etch” graffiti from windows and other glass surfaces. To access these services, simply download a PDF copy of our graffiti removal form, sign it, and then email, fax, mail, or hand-deliver it to our office. Most graffiti removal will be done the same day we get the form.
We work with numerous talented mural artists to bring a bit of flair and style to visually bland alleyways and walls. Not only do the murals they create add a bit of art to our “daily mix,” but these murals also help discourage graffiti and encourage foot traffic. This service is completely free to property owners or designated representatives of property owners. If you have ever wanted your outside walls to look really cool, contact us and we will work with our artists to come up with a design that we are sure you will love. To get started, simply fill out this mural release and consent form and schedule a meeting with our Director, Christian Martin. He may be contacted at [email protected], or at 415.775.1180.
The Lower Polk CBD meets on the 3rd Friday of each month, at 10:00 am at our office located at 1170 Sutter Street, San Francisco, California 94109.
All meetings are open to the public. If you require accommodations to attend this meeting, please contact us at 415-775-1180.
