The City of Colton recognizes graffiti as a serious problem. Graffiti is destructive of the rights and values of property owners and the entire community. It has a detrimental effect on the attractiveness of our community. If no action is taken it can add to the detorioration of neighborhoods. When citizens become involved in active, frequent removal of graffiti, it sends a message that graffiti and other destructive activities will not be tolerated.
