A better way to report graffiti in the park(s)

May 12th, 2015 by Mike

That particularly garish bit of graffiti is gone from Maple Leaf Reservoir Park, and we have a new way to report future problems.

This incident was originally reported on Seattle Public Utility’s graffiti report form and to the Graffiti Hotline (684-7587).

The report apparently got lost between SPU and parks.

From SeattleĀ  Parks and Recreation:

But if you’re certain that a particular piece of graffiti is within a park, it’s more direct (and because it’s more direct, it’s quicker; and also because it’s more direct, there’s that much less chance of going astray) to call Seattle Parks’ Maintenance Request Line (684-7250).

When we dialed the parks request line, it was answered by a real, live, person. !!

We try to have graffiti removed no later than six working days after it’s reported; if special equipment is needed, ten days; for hate-speech graffiti, 24 hours.
