South Side's Graffiti Watch holding meeting on how residents can help


Last updated 4/6/2015 at 6:07pm

Graffiti Watch, a volunteer action group of the South Side Community Council, is holding a community meeting at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 9 at the Brashear Association, 2000 Sarah Street, to explain about the variety of ways area residents can choose to help.

Other volunteer opportunities will also be identified. Graffiti Watch has been working since 2007 to prevent and remove graffiti on South Side. Achieving that goal has required an ongoing effort. Managing graffiti is one sign of the health of a community and community involvement.

Because they continually need to be working to prevent and remove graffiti, they need new volunteers for the ongoing effort.

Wendy Urbanic, 311 Response Center manager, will present information about how everyone can be the eyes and ears of the community by reporting concerns to 311.  She will describe how to make a report and what happens when a report is called in to the Response Center.

Ms. Urbanic will describe how Graffiti Watch and 311 have worked closely together to prevent graffiti in South Side.

Graffiti Watch works in partnership with residents, property owners, 311Response Center, City of Pittsburgh Graffiti Busters and Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
