Anti-Graffiti Coating To Be Required on L.A. Buildings

The Los Angeles City Council has unanimously approved a measure that will require an anti-graffiti coating on all new buildings in the city.

"The ordinance will take effect 30 days after being signed by the mayor.

The anti-graffiti coating must cover the walls and doors from the ground to a height of at least nine feet. The coating is mandated on all buildings, unless owners sign a "Covenant and Agreement Regarding Maintenance of Building (Graffiti Removal)" with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety."
