    I used to own a skatepark downtown where kids could come and skate for free. There was an abandoned warehouse behind the park that technically I owned, so graff writers used to come down and wreck shit. They did a segment on the news about my park, and anonymously interviewed some skaters and writers about graff. I opted not to be interviewed to divulge any personal info on the park, but it was nice that graff was presented in such a positive way.

    i was in the paper on 13th:
    Mild spring temperatures will likely draw local residents outside this week; but when it comes to graffiti, the end of winter isn't always a good thing.

    “You don't see a lot of kids hanging around outside doing graffiti when the temperature is so lowâ€, says Rob Tamblyn of the Downtown Kingston! Business Improvement Area (B.I.A.).

    That changes dramatically in the summer, however, which is why the B.I.A. implemented a graffiti eradication program in 2005.

    “It was a two-year pilot projectâ€, says Tamblyn of the initiative, during which a Queen's University chemistry student was hired to research and create various products for effective graffiti removal. “We were able to remove literally hundreds of tags and murals from everything from buildings to garbage cans to lamp posts…you name it.â€

    But although the program vastly improved the graffiti situation in the downtown area, vandals have continued their work in other parts of the city.

    “It certainly has spreadâ€, says Tamblyn, noting that buildings like the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Memorial Center and the Isabel Turner branch of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library have become popular targets.

    Graffiti artists aren't just spreading out - they're also moving up. “A lot of the street-level graffiti we were seeing downtown wasn't thereâ€, says Tamblyn of the effectiveness of the program. “But we did see an outbreak on rooftops.â€

    According to city staff, business and property owners are expected to remove graffiti on their own - and in a timely fashion.

    “Generally, we'll write up an order asking them to remove it in a reasonable amount of timeâ€, says Building & Licensing Manager Steve Murphy. “If it's a city building, the city will take care of it.â€

    If the vandalism is not removed, the city can take the property owner to court. Murphy says the measure is only used as a last resort, but has proved successful in the past.

    “We would rather they simply cover it and everyone's happyâ€, says Murphy.

    And if individuals are looking for some graffiti-removal advice, Tamblyn says they're more than welcome to contact the B.I.A.

    “We would certainly make all the research we have available to anyone who's looking for itâ€, says Tamblyn.

    Although the two-year pilot project has come to an end, Tamblyn adds that the B.I.A. will remove graffiti from businesses in the downtown area at the owner's request.

    “If you remove graffiti within 24 to 48 hours of it appearing…basically, the kids are going to give up; they're going to move on to somewhere elseâ€, he says.

    And city officials hope that eventually, vandals will just give up for good.

    “We are in the process of developing a program to address graffiti concernsâ€, adds Public Works Manager of Program Development Judy Brick. “Hopefully we're going to get that up and running this year.â€

    In the meantime, those who work to keep Kingston looking its best hope local graffiti artists will take the summer off - and find other things to do in the great outdoors.
