Graffiti Management and Paint Out Trial Program

anti-graffiti-image

The Mount Pleasant BIA strives to provide services that our members want and need.

Prevalent graffiti and tagging has been an ongoing challenge for many of our members and the MPBIA Board of Directors has decided to take action, hiring Futur Graffiti Solutions to take care of the problem on a weekly basis (for a 3 month trial). Before the team at Futur can get started, we require the permission of an authorized representative of each property, in writing, so that we can address the issue on your building. To ensure authorized representatives are informed of this program, we will be mailing this document along with the required City form to property owners. Please contact your property owner to ensure you have authorization.

To participate in this initiative, please fill out the form on page 4 of this package. To simplify the process, we have also created online access to the City form via PDF download. By filling out the attached forms or downloading the PDF and sending it to us , you are authorizing the MPBIA and Futur Graffiti Solutions to report and remove graffiti on your business or property.

To reduce the cost of this program, the MPBIA is working with the City of Vancouver’s Integrated Graffiti Management Program, through which we have access to some free Dulux paint for each business. To ensure a colour match when painting over graffiti we require the brand name and swatch number of your exterior paint. Please submit them on the reverse of this form.

Paint Out Pilot Project:

We are also investigating simple but effective methods to beautify and brighten the Mount Pleasant streetscape and are launching the Paint Out Pilot Project. We are looking for exterior walls in the area that could be repainted our branded BLUE and maintained by Futur indefinitely. These blue walls will add color and interest to the neighbourhood.
