L.A. may require anti-graffiti coating

September 29, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Property owners in Los Angeles may have to reach a little deeper in their pockets to help pay for graffiti prevention. The city council will consider a proposal on Tuesday that would require all new buildings built in the city to have an anti-graffiti coating.

The coating would cover the walls and doors of buildings, including homes, from the ground up to a height of nine feet.

Property owners could be exempt from the ordinance if they sign a contract and promise to remove any graffiti on their property within a week of it being applied.
