Graffiti

Graffiti Ordinance In Effect
  Reporting Graffiti Vandalism
To report graffiti vandalism, please contact Police Dispatch at 503-629-0111.
   
 
The purpose of this ordinance is to encourage prompt removal of graffiti after the incident is reported to the Tigard Police Department. It also discourages graffiti from remaining in place for extended periods of time, which can also encourage additional graffiti.

Please know that it is not our intent to victimize you twice as a result of your victimization. It is however, essential to the welfare of our entire community to have graffiti removed as promptly as possible. To this end, the City will be pleased to work with you and try to make it as easy as possible.

It is important for you to know that failure to remove the graffiti after the 14 days notice can result in a civil infraction. The fine for this violation can be imposed up to a $100 fine per day, until the graffiti is removed. Naturally, we would not welcome this action of enforcement, and sincerely anticipate that residents affected will take the proper steps to eradicate the graffiti.

We have contacted local paint stores to help make this cleanup effort as easy as possible. The following businesses have agreed to offer discounts on paint purchased to diminish the effects of graffiti vandalism:

Miller Paint 10115 SW Nimbus Ave, Tigard 503-968-9525
Home Depot 14800 SW Sequoia Pkwy, Tigard 503-639-3500
Lowe's 12615 SW 72nd Ave, Tigard 503-624-2644

In the event you seek their generous offer of discounted paint, please be prepared to provide the store with the Tigard Police case number associated with your incident.

Need to Report Vandalism?
If you need to report graffiti vandalism to your property, please contact the non-emergency police dispatch at 503-629-0111.
