In an effort to remove graffiti around the city in a timely manner, the Santa Barbara City Council adopted a Graffiti Abatement Ordinance Program in 2005. The ordinance requires graffiti on private property to be removed within three days of notice. If graffiti is not removed within the three days, City staff may then remove it at a cost to the owner.
