Great Graffiti Paint Out-
Collingwood, Canada

Collingwood was established in 1858, it is a town in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada situated on Nottawasaga Bay at the southern point of Georgian Bay. Graffiti damage has reached new heights on a global level; vandals are becoming more aggressive and bold when “tagging” and defacing property, it astonishes property owners everywhere the risks that are taken by vandals when making their messages and symbols highly visible.

 

On October 22, 2010, members of the Connect Downtown Management Committee, driven by Mayor Chris Carter and Paula Lehr, Downtown Revitalization Coordinator, organized the “Great Graffiti Paint Out”. The goal of the “Great Graffiti Paint Out” was to remove illegal tags from buildings in the Downtown core; develop partnerships with local businesses and engage youth in a positive community event.

 

The graffiti problem continues to plague retailers, hospitals, hotels, facilities, recreation areas, highways, transportation systems, property management, and even home owners throughout the world. For decades, Dumond has experienced that no substrate is exempt from vandals and property values diminish rapidly if not controlled. At Dumond, we are working with local, city, and government agencies in solving their problems with our arsenal of Watchdog Graffiti Control Products.

Figure 5. A major objective was to have the youth feel connected to the Downtown core bringing with it a sense of pride and ownership and respect for private property. Students from Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Pretty River Academy painted several 4’ X 8’ graffiti art boards that were auctioned off through several Downtown businesses with the proceeds going towards the schools art programs.
