Removing Graffiti

If graffiti is on your property and visible from a public right-of-way, such as street, sidewalk, or alley, the city has the authority to remove the graffiti. Please report all Graffiti through RVA311.  DPW will investigate and determine proper course of action.  In order to investigate graffiti on private property, the property owner will be required to fill out the Consent to Enter and Release of Liability Agreement form, sign, and mail to:

    City of Richmond
    Department of Public Works
    900 E. Broad St., Room 704
    Richmond, VA 23219

Due to limitations and or the nature of the graffiti, DPW reserves the right to refuse the removal of graffiti on private property.  The way the city will remove the graffiti will depend on the surface and type of material used. Painted surfaces may require repainting and the homeowner may need to supply the city with the paint. Unpainted surfaces like brick or concrete walls may be blasted with high pressure water/sand or water/baking soda.

The Fan District Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
