Buckhead Heritage wants the public to help Atlanta officials crack down on graffiti in Buckhead.

Graffiti is a growing problem in Buckhead,” a Buckhead Heritage press release says. “Numerous signs in the area have been ‘tagged’ in the last several months.  Recently, several speed limit signs along East Wesley Road were defaced with graffiti and electrical poles and boxes along Northside Drive have been marred.  The I-75 retaining wall between West Paces Ferry and Mt. Paran Road has been sprayed with large graffiti lettering as well.”

The press release urges the public to contact Atlanta officials to report any graffiti on public spaces.

Residents can report graffiti to the city’s Public Works Department by emailing publicworks@atlantaga.gov.  (The press release recommends copying the emails to Atlanta City Council members Howard Shook, hshook@atlantaga.gov, and Yolanda Adrean, yadrean@atlantaga.gov.) To report graffiti via the customer service line, call (404) 330-6333.

The press release says residents need to provide information about where the graffiti is located. Residents can obtain a service request number that they can use to check up on the requests, the press release says.
