Oakland Council Passes Graffiti Ordinance

With a coalition of San Pablo Avenue business owners urging approval and graffiti artist advocates asking for a delay while a better law is crafted, the Oakland City Council unanimously approved a new ordinance Tuesday night to enhance penalties for persons who tag properties in Oakland and for property owners who fail to remove them on a timely basis. The new ordinance was developed in the office of outgoing West Oakland Councilwoman Nancy Nadel and co-introduced by City Attorney Barbara Parker during Parker’s hard-fought election campaign this fall.
