Graffiti is problem and a City of Tempe Code violation. To help businesses remain in compliance, the City of Tempe has launched the Tempe Graffiti Referral Program. Studies show that the best way to stop graffiti is to regularly remove it. The City of Tempe has negotiated a flat rate with a licensed, bonded and insured removal service. As part of an annual contract, Graffiti Protective Coatings, Inc. will inspect and document the property for graffiti every two weeks, blending paint to match colors, and will cover any graffiti that is there. They send before and after images to the property owner. The annual cost is determined by lineal feet.
