SPU Graffiti Volunteer Program

Under the City of Seattle’s anti-graffiti ordinance (Seattle Municipal Code 10.07.010), property owners are required to remove graffiti found on their property within ten (10) calendar days. As part of the City’s graffiti prevention program, Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) coordinates volunteers and community groups that are willing to support and assist property owners by painting over graffiti on private property. Property owners must sign a release form authorizing volunteers to paint over graffiti. Volunteers will have the option to use neutral colored paint, such as brown or gray, and/or SPU-approved stenciled art, provided by SPU unless the owner makes other arrangements with SPU in advance.
