Graffiti vandalism is a major problem in our Dupont neighborhood and the District of Columbia. If not removed, graffiti is a visual blight; reduces property values; increases criminal activity and gives the impression to residents, businesses and visitors that we do not care about our neighborhood. Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) is committed to maintaining and improving the quality of life for everyone in our neighborhood. The best way to fight graffiti vandalism is prompt removal and, if needed, continual prompt removal.
The DC government will remove or paint over graffiti vandalism on public space or private property. Simply call 311 and provide a specific address. To clean private property, the building owner’s permission is required before cleaning. 311 can provide the required private property permission form. The signed form must be faxed to (202) 645-5392.
Graffiti includes paint, gummed labels and pasted paper.
If you have any questions or want experienced graffiti fighting neighbors to help remove or paint over graffiti vandalism or want to help DCCA fight this neighborhood blight, please call Phil Carney at 202-462-2776.
