Graffiti Reporting & Removal

Graffiti may be considered art by some, but to property owners it is vandalism. The Village of Oak Park imposes fines, regulates the sale of spray paint, fat markers and paint sticks, and limits where minors can legally possess these common tools of the tagging vandal. Property owners are required to clean off graffiti within seven days of being notified. Graffiti here tends to be the work of middle schoolers and young teens. Tagging is considered unsightly by most, can be expensive to remove and, left unchecked, can affect the quality of life and desirability of entire neighborhoods.


Use this box to provide information on the location of the graffiti. Be as specific as possible, such as north side of Lake Street between Lombard and Harvey.
