I chose to pick this building on Powell Blvd as an example because the business paints over their graffiti every morning when I’m driving or walking by. I can’t imagine what it costs them a year in graffiti abatement both monetarily and from a man hour perspective. The building across the street from them on Powell Blvd. is covered completely in trashy graffiti. It seems like they have given up the fight and let the taggers/vandals win. When I spoke to the business employee who covers it up daily the employee just said to be better than the crooks and the vandals.
We need more people like the un-named painter doing the tag covering. What did you do today to make Portland better?
Be Better Portland!
The gallery above is just one storefront I see every morning. Every morning the poor worker is out there with a snow shovel picking up medical waste in the form of dirty drug needles. Contact your local representative about your area. Legislator Lookup (oregonlegislature.gov) File a police report online PPB Online Reporting – Portland, Oregon Police Bureau (portlandoregon.gov) and keep doing it until someone shows up. It might take decades to undo what harm Portland has done to it’s self in the last four to six years.
