    It was mentioned here before a few weeks ago, but I haven't heard anything since then.

    I contacted the Clark County graffiti people and am awaiting a reply.

    I think they'll supply the paint and brushes, we just need to provide the muscle.

    Who's up for some grunt work?

    I have a cousin of a cousin that works for the state as a painter, specifically graffiti removal. Go-go gadget family networking!

    Clark County said they MIGHT give us paint and brushes. But if not, it's less than $200 to equip 10 of us.

    I will hear Monday whether they will give us paint and brushes and what area they'd like us to work. If not, everyone feel ok with a $20 donation? I'll pick up paint, buckets, and brushes at Home Depot and cover the difference. If they don't care where we go, anyone know any graffiti-heavy areas that need attention? I'll need to know what "color" paint to buy.

    About a month ago, there was a graffiti "attack" on a Henderson neighborhood that received press attention. Can someone check what neighborhood this was and do a drive by? If there is still graffiti in this neighborhood, this would be a great target, and would likely receive some press attention.

    If you're gonna go to Home Depot, why not ask them to donate the materials? Large corporations usually don't have a problem with that small of a donation, since it's for a good cause for the community.

    If you are serious, I will have my company donate the materials and do the press release. Just tell me when.

    I carry all over Nevada, Arizona, New MExico, never had a LE encounter.

    Hey, everyone. This could be a benefit to all involved.

    Pace,

    Thanks for the offer. I hope they are serious.

    The ball is rolling. But someone has to push every now and then to keep it going.

    ....
    You beat me to it, but the more people that step up the more of a service we can be to the community.

    We would be glad to donate our time and materials to help.

    As a new business to NLV i wouldn't mind helping out our new neighborhood.

    I spoke with Clark County Graffiti Dept and they are interested in giving us an "area" which we keep an eye on, kind of like the "Adopt a Highway" program. In exchange they would supply us with the paint and supplies (they even offered garbage bags and gloves). She said areas tend to get hit over and over again.

    If this is too much of a commitment, they said they wouldn't turn down our help on a one-time-basis and would give us a hard-hit area.

    Residential private property is an area we're allowed to cover in general. Any commercial business we would have to secure permission first.

    They also indicated they need us to work in unincorporated Clark County, rather than one of the incorporated cities. As such, the area she specifically mentioned was off Las Vegas Blvd N in the northeast.

    Thoughts?

    I didn't see it mentioned, but when is this going to take place? I would like to participate. I live in Colorado right now, but I am moving back to Vegas next month!

    Still planning. Before we do this, I'd like to try to incorporate ourselves into a non profit to maximize exposure for our good deeds.

    Man, definitely count me in. I'll wrangle the family, and maybe a few friends. Might I suggest an early morning, considering weather?
