A GRAFFITI removal blitz is under way in the Nowra CBD.
The one-off campaign will see an estimated 200 tags on private property removed.
Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash said the blitz would help property owners get on top of graffiti on their buildings.
“While council has made a concerted effort to remove all incidents of vandalism from council assets within the Nowra CBD, much of the remaining graffiti is located on private property,” Cr Gash said.
“To help in further eradicating
all vandalism within the city, council
is working with local property owners to remove graffiti from private
Director of Assets and Works Ben Stewart said the graffiti blitz was expected to take three weeks.
“Through a targeted ongoing campaign, council has been able to make serious inroads into the removal of graffiti from council assets,” Mr Stewart said.
“The next step in this campaign will see council undertake the once off removal of graffiti from private property that is visible or adjacent to public land within the Nowra CBD.
“Council staff have received positive feedback from property owners after contacting nearly 100 businesses within the CBD to inform them of the blitz.
“It is also important to note that council will be seeking the co-operation and commitment of local business in keeping their property graffiti free at the completion of the blitz.”
