Residents whose homes have been targeted with graffiti are encouraged to contact the Prince Albert Bylaw Enforcement Unit’s Summer Student Graffiti Program for help sprucing up their properties. Local post-secondary students with the program can do the work for you at no cost.
Areas targeted by graffiti can be covered up using one of two paint colours, white or brown. The Summer Student Graffiti Program is open to residential property owners in Prince Albert only.
“Painting over graffiti on residential properties – especially within the first 72 hours – is the best way to discourage people from coming back to target your home again and again,” said Bylaw Manager Suzanne Stubbs. “If you have graffiti, we have people ready to help and we’re hoping more residents will take advantage of this free service.”
Requests to paint over graffiti must be signed by the owner of the residence, including in cases of rental properties. Renters should contact their landlords if they find graffiti.
Residents interested in applying for the Summer Student Graffiti Program can call 306-953-4370.
Should residents or business owners wish to do the work themselves, the City of Prince Albert offers the Anti-Graffiti Paint Program. The program offers one free paint kit to residents or business owners whose properties have been targeted.
