Graffiti Bylaw 7343

Prevents the unsightliness of property by prohibiting the placement of graffiti and requiring that property be kept free of graffiti.

The graffiti bylaw requires property owners to have graffiti removed within 10 days of being served a notice from the City. Graffiti that remains after being reported will be removed and the removal cost will be billed to the property owner.

Graffiti is considered vandalism under the law when it is painted on private or public property without permission. The minimum fine for anyone caught writing graffiti is $500 under the bylaw.
