Keeping the District Clean & Green

August 16, 2012

The District is very active in removing the visual blight caused by graffiti. Graffiti abated by the District is color matched and chronicled for HPD investigations. To date the District has abated over 1,300 individual incidents of graffiti. We are grateful to our community partners and residents who actively assist us in reporting incidents. We are also working closely with our graffiti abatement contractor and HPD to identify and prosecute the individuals responsible for graffiti in our District.

We encourage all residents and businesses to join the in the effort to help us eradicate graffiti from the District by reporting to 3-1-1 or by reporting incidences via the “Report a Problem” button on the home page.

The District also provides funding for street light surveys which are performed bi-monthly with outages reported to CenterPoint Energy for repair.
