The Saskatoon Property Maintenance and Nuisance Abatement Bylaw defines “Graffiti” as any drawing, inscription, writing or other mark that disfigures or defaces any building, accessory building, fence or other structure, however made, or otherwise affixed.
Graffiti Management Project
The Graffiti Bylaw section under the Saskatoon Property Maintenance and Nuisance Abatement Bylaw requires that no person shall permit graffiti on any building, accessory building, fence or on any structure on property owned by that person. All exterior surfaces shall be free of graffiti.
How the Graffiti Bylaw Works
Once graffiti has been discovered, Fire and Protective Services will issue the property owner with an Order to Clean-up the Graffiti within 15 days and a brochure explaining why removing graffiti is important, offer some graffiti removal incentives and give a notice asking them to clean up the graffiti within seven days.
At the end of the 15 days (and assuming there is no appeal), the City would have the right to have Youth Works paint over the graffiti without the consent of the owner. The cost of the paint job would not be added to the taxes and the property owner would not be prosecuted.
