Graffiti and Responsible Citizenship
The City of Calgary Community Standards Bylaw defines graffiti as words, figures, letters, drawings or stickers applied, scribbled, scratched, etched, sprayed or attached on or to a surface. Graffiti may appear on any surface, including walls, fences, mail boxes, newspaper vending machines, signs, utility boxes, roads, sidewalks and windows. In other words, graffiti can include ANY markings you make to ANY property that is not your own.
Graffiti is vandalism. It has many social and economic consequences for Calgarians. In this module, you will discover more about graffiti and how you, acting as a responsible citizen, can help to prevent graffiti in your community.
