On October 1st, the city's Office of Community Beautification quietly launched an improved website tool they should have been much louder and much more proud about. The Anti-Graffiti Request System is an easy and quick way to report graffiti in your neighborhood so abatement teams can come out and clean it up. It comes complete with an e-mail confirmation once your report is submitted and once the graffiti is abated, which is often the next day.

In fact, in our experience, the new reporting system is faster than calling 3-1-1. So give it a try and clean up your neighborhood. It never hurts to have a little (or a lot of) civic pride, does it?
