Anti-graffiti 1Apparently taking a cue from Shepard Fairey’s fight against graffiti, the Los Angeles City Council is considering an ordinance requiring all buildings to have an anti-graffiti coating at least nine feet high. An alternative to using impermeable tile surfaces, the clear coating “often discolors the surface of buildings and is not always environmentally friendly” so the motion provides an exception. Property owners can skip the anti-graffiti treatment if they sign a contract agreeing to clean up vandalism within seven days or 72 hours of being told to do so by police. |NBC|
