Ruapehu communities have traditionally taken pride in their urban environments and are highly concerned about graffiti vandalism. Ruapehu has a vision of "being free from graffiti and zero tolerance is shown toward graffiti vandalism".
In 2008 Council adopted the Zero Tolerance for Graffiti Vandalism Strategy and undertook to build community involvement and partnerships in the reduction of graffiti vandalism throughout our District.
The Strategy is under review in 2011, with an added focus on prevention through education, further promoting rapid removal, and community pride and beautification projects.
What to do to report Graffiti on Public Property
When graffiti is reported on public property, Council will provide a two working day turnaround for removal. Please contact Council to report any graffiti found on public property.
Graffiti on Private Property
It is the responsibility of property owners to remove graffiti from their own private property. Council has free grey paint available for property owners as a first paint-out response. We need the support of our entire community to take pride in our neighbourhoods and to remove graffiti as rapidly as possible. Contact Council if you would like to make use of this free paint (Council will not paint private property).
