GRAFFITI ON PUBLIC OR PRIVATE PROPERTY'  

Sections  

8.54.010 Graffiti removal.  

8.54.010 GRAFFITI REMOVAL. A. Intent. Graffiti on public and private property is a blighting factor which not only depreciates the value of property, but also the value of adjacent and surrounding communities. Government Code Section 53069.3 authorizes a city to enact ordinances to provide for the use of city funds to remove graffiti from public and privately owned permanent structures located within the city. The City Council finds and declares that graffiti or related inscribed material is obnoxious and pursuant to Government Code Section 53069.3, authorizes that a program be instituted allowing for the use of city funds to remove graffiti on public and private property. It is the Council's further intent to provide for the prohibition of the placement of graffiti on public and private property to the extent such prohibition is permitted by state law and to further prohibit persons from allowing graffiti to remain and thus foster the perpetuation of blight upon the community. The City Council also finds and determines that the removal of graffiti is inexpensive and can easily be accomplished by property owners of the City within three calendar days.  

B. Graffiti Defined. "Graffiti" shall mean the unauthorized inscribing, spraying of paint or marking of ink, chalk, dye, paint, or other similar substances on public or private buildings, structures, vehicles, equipment, places, and similar things or locations.

C. Graffiti Prohibited.

1. It shall be unlawful for any person to paint, mark, chalk, or otherwise apply graffiti or other inscribing material on public or privately owned buildings, structures, vehicles, equipment, places, or other similar locations or things within the city.

2. It shall be unlawful for the owner of any private property to permit graffiti or other inscribed material to remain so as to be capable of being viewed by a person utilizing any public right of way within the City, such as but not limited to a road, parkway or alley, providing that the City has given the property owner written notice to remove the graffiti within a period of three calendar days and the graffiti or other inscribed material has not been removed within said three day period. If the three day period has expired, the City may remove the graffiti with the consent of the owner and at the owner's expense. If the owner refuses to remove the graffiti after said three‑day period, the graffiti shall constitute a public nuisance and may be abated pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 15.08 of the Azusa Municipal Code.

D. Procedure To Remove Graffiti. Whenever the City Administrator or his or her designee determines that graffiti or other inscribed material is so located on public or private property as to be capable of being viewed by a person utilizing any public right of way, and the owner of the property consents to the removal of the graffiti by the City, the City shall be authorized to provide for the removal of the graffiti. If the City provides for the removal of graffiti, it shall not authorize nor undertake to provide for the painting or repair of any more extensive area than that where the graffiti is located.
