Graffiti costs American communities more than $8 billion per year. It hurts property values, drives away business, and sends the message that nobody cares about the community. Here is what you can do to help.

Report it
  • Report graffiti immediately. The sooner it is reported, the sooner it can be removed. If the graffiti is on public property (belonging to the town) contact The Town of Windsor, Public Works, Street Maintenance Department at 838-1009.
Remove it
  • Removing graffiti promptly is the best way to prevent it. Prompt, persistent removal usually results in a nearly zero rate of recurrence. If the graffiti is on private property unfortunately, it is the owners responsibility to remove it.
Prevent it
  • Choose patterned and rough concrete surfaces or tiled or mosaic surfaces for fences. Plant trees, shrubs or climbing vines to restrict access to tempting walls.
