Audit reveals positive results in efforts to wipe out graffiti vandalism.

Graffiti vandalism is a public nuisance offense that causes damage to public and private property.
Graffiti is different from litter as it is both a bylaw infraction and criminal act (mischief under the
Criminal Code of Canada). During each of Edmonton's graffiti audits the consultant examined graffiti
vandalism in the most active neighbourhoods where graffiti is documented in Edmonton. Edmonton has
367 designated neighbourhoods. It would be cost and time prohibitive to audit all 367 of them,
therefore a sample of neighbourhoods was used for audit purposes.  Please read more about Capital City Clean up and other related documents like the audit, HERE.
