One of our number, Sarah McDonald, is involved with the Community Policing Liason Committee in the Toronto Police’s 55 Division. The committee is hosting a Town Hall meeting on graffiti on May 27th, 2008 at the Main Square community centre. (More details will follow.)
Before the town hall, the committee and Sarah would like any pictures you have of graffiti in your neighbourhood and/or letters/impact statements from community members about how graffiti has affected your life.
I know from talking to people in this neighbourhood that graffiti is something that really irks people and we know that it doesn’t do anything for our feelings of safety and our commercial strip of the Danforth. Apparently, graffiti is one of the top three crime concerns that residents in 55 Division have identified.
