Our report that the City had removed the tunnel graffiti turned out to be wrong.
We counted on a report from the City (see below), but it turns out the graffiti had not been removed as reported. Environment Committee chair Wes Hough, who received the notification, has reported back to the City about the error, and asked for the removal to take place immediately. We'll let you know as soon as it's done (or if you see it first, let us know by posting on the Google group!). Sorry for the wrong information.
An iPhone photo of graffitti in the Little Tunnel on Sunday led to a phone call from BOCA's Environment Committeee to the City's Anti-Graffiti Request System. By Thursday, BOCA was notified that the graffiti had been removed.
If you see graffiti in the tunnels, just call it in to 3-1-1. The City has been very responsive and effective - your tax dollars working well! A shout-out to the Bureau of Engineering's Office of Community Beautification,
Thanks to Wes Hough and his committee for quick action, and to Little Tunnel Captain Judi Jensen for her ongoing work keeping the tunnel in good shape.
Also a shout-out to Roosevelt tunnel captain Sharon Kilbride - on a recent morning trip to the beach, the tunnel smelled clean and fresh, thanks to another mop-down with disinfectant.
BOCA and SMCCA will soon launch our community volunteer program to maintain the tunnels. Everyone in the Canyon will be invited to give one hour a year to help keep the tunnels clean, well-lit, and safe. Stay tuned.
