The Graffiti Abatement program is responsible for the abatement of graffiti on public property.

Report a Problem to OAK311


The Graffiti Abatement program will perform one “courtesy” abatement on private property. Subsequent instances of graffiti on the same private property will be referred to Oakland's Building Services to enforce under the Oakland Municipal Code §8.10.200.

Graffiti on the property of other agencies will be referred to them for abatement.
