Anaheim’s Anti-Graffiti Effort A Model For Other Cities

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim, Anaheim Beautiful and the city, neighbors toting garbage bags made a statement about wanting to maintain Anaheim’s reputation for being a safe and attractive place to live, officials said.

It’s the second Anaheim neighborhood adopted by community service groups. The Balsam-Curtis neighborhood has worked with Anaheim Beautiful and the city to reduce crime and clean up the neighborhood for more than a year.
