Graffiti Abatement Program

In the on-going battle against graffiti, the City of Chula Vista has two graffiti eradication programs for residents and business owners that have been a victim of tagging or graffiti. These programs allow community groups such as residents, schools, churches, and businesses to get involved in the eradication of graffiti on private property in their neighborhoods. "Buff A Block" and "Art On A Box," are designed to be fun and educational activities, by inspiring civic responsibility, community pride, spirit, camaraderie, and to provide opportunity to accomplish something positive by beautifying the community. For more information on these projects, please call (619) 397-6037 or send an email.
