    Graffiti Program

    Street Services has a graffiti program to combat unsightly vandalism. The program is responsible for removing graffiti from sidewalks, walls, signs, bridges, bus stop shelters, and benches within the City right-of-ways. The program is also responsible for cleaning it from play ground equipment, structures, and buildings within parks and other City owned properties. The program uses the help of persons completing court mandated community service hours. To report graffiti around the City, please call (828) 259-5720, or report it on the Asheville App
