The City of Lemon Grove is responsible for removing graffiti from public infrastructure only. This includes sidewalks, pavement, curb and gutter, and City facilities. Graffiti eradication from commercial and residential properties is the responsibility of the property owner.
Graffiti is defined as writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. We strive to remove graffiti within ten (10) working days of the initial report. Offensive and/or threatening graffiti is prioritized for immediate removal. Delays may occur due to emergencies, location, or resources available.
If you see someone placing graffiti, please call the Lemon Grove Sheriffs Substation at (858) 565-5200.
