Removal of Graffiti
The Department of Development & Permits may contract for the removal of graffiti on any public wall or structure, or any private wall or structure visible from a public right-of-way. Section 46-13.1.2 of the Chesapeake City Code indicates that the city must give reasonable notice to the owner to remove the defacement. If the owner fails to respond to the notice, the city may have the defacement removed. A lien will be placed on the property in the amount of the cost for such removal.
Questions or concerns can be directed to the Development and Permits Department at 757-382-6378 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
