GRAFFITI REMOVER GIVEAWAYBe sure to come to the FHRA annual meeting and pick up your free bottle of graffiti remover. We will also give a live demonstration on how to use the product to remove graffiti from your property and around our neighborhood. This product works great to remove spray paint, ink pen and many other graffiti elements from both hard and porous surfaces. FHRA will be handing out 16oz bottles of graffiti remover to help residents remove graffiti that you might see and want to eliminate.
Thanks to our many community activists against graffiti, we have a good record of keeping our community relatively clear of graffiti blight. It is important to remove graffiti as soon as you see it. Leaving graffiti up invites other taggers to make their mark and increases the frequency of this eye-sore.
Common places for smaller tags are on garbage cans, bus benches, and street signs. The product we will be handing out at the FHRA annual meeting cleans graffiti off all these objects. If you are able help, we are ready to support you.
Providing materials to our residents is one of the many ways FHRA helps you to maintain the wonderful neighborhoods we all enjoy in Franklin Hills. If you need more help with graffiti problems in your area, or want a refill of the graffiti remover, please contact us at FHRA@FranklinHills.org.
In January 2011, in the midst of a rise in graffiti
the FHRA sent a letter to Councilmember Tom LaBonge
requesting that he oppose a proposal to cut graffiti removal funding by 50%.

July 23, 2009 a resident in the 2400 block of Lyric reported:
"Our new fence was spray painted, quite a large amount! by two juveniles who were seen by my neighbor down the hill."
The neighbor provided the photos in the composite above and this description from their surveillance camera:
"The two taggers trespassed on our property and the property adjacent to us in order to tag the neighbor's fence. The taggers climbed up our wall and walked into our front yard then crossed over to the adjacent neighbor in order to tag the fence of the neighbors who live on Lyric. When the taggers were done, they left behind a couple of spray paint cans then walked down the hillside and onto our property and exited out our front gate. We saw the taggers climbing our wall and then exiting from our front gate on our surveillance camera. This happened at about 11:30pm. We reported this incident to the police and gave them a copy of the surveillance tape, pictures of the graffiti and the spray paint cans. We felt very violated and uncomfortable by this incident because they trespassed on our property, and from the surveillance cameras we could see that the taggers observed the street for 15-20 minutes before they climbed our wall. It seemed like they had planned this ahead of time."
FRANKLIN HILLS DECLARED A GRAFFITI FREE ZONE
Citizen Call Catches Halloween Tagger
The Shakespeare Bridge, still dressed up in its holiday wreaths, was attacked by graffiti bandits in the first week of 2004.
All four corners of the bridge were tagged. Even though green paint was used it didn't seem to fit in with the holiday spirit. On the northwest turret it almost looked like some kid was trying to spell out "Shakespeare" and got stuck after the first few letters.
