Graffiti Management in Kelowna
The City of Kelowna recognizes the social and economic consequences of graffiti vandalism. Graffiti costs the community hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in painting and removal costs. Money allocated to graffiti clean up is no longer available to other valuable community initiatives and programs. Graffiti also impacts our city’s image, deters patronage of commercial areas and negatively impacts on investment potential and maximum return on residential real estate. If not immediately removed, graffiti serves as an invitation to littering, loitering, additional graffiti, and other forms of crime and acts of violence.
Turn in a Tagger
The City of Kelowna in partnership with Crime Stoppers is now offering a $500 reward for tips that lead to an arrest for graffiti vandalism. Tips can be reported by calling 1-800-222-8477, texting ktown to CRIMES (274637) or leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net.
