34th Street tagged

August 20th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Vandals tagged 34th Avenue last week, from the Boulevard to the Village.  If you notice graffiti on your street, try the “Find it Fix it” App, available here.

“Find It, Fix It” is a smartphone app offering mobile users one more way to report selected issues to the City of Seattle.Screen shot of the Find It, Fix It mobile app home page.

With Find It, Fix It, reporting an issue is as easy as snapping a photo with your smartphone, adding detailed information, and hitting submit.The map’s “drag and drop” feature or the phone’s own technology can be used to pinpoint the location.

Android users can download the app from the Google Play Store and iPhone users can download it from the App Store.

The app offers the following service request categories:

  • Abandoned Vehicles: report vehicles parked in a public right-of-way more than three days.
  • Graffiti: report graffiti, including what it is on — parking meter, utility pole or building — so it gets automatically routed to the appropriate department for response.
  • Illegal Dumping: report illegal dumping — junk, garbage or debris — on public property, including roadsides, open streets and paved alleys.
  • Pothole: report a pothole.
  • Parking Enforcement: make an inquiry regarding a parking concern.
  • Streetlight Report: report a streetlight outage or damaged streetlight.
  • Other Inquiry: this miscellaneous category is for making an inquiry or request not listed above, which will be processed by the City’s Customer Service Bureau. Mobile users should choose this category to provide feedback.

The app also provides a link to m.seattle.gov, the mobile version of the City of Seattle’s website.

Once you download and use Find It, Fix It, feel free to submit feedback using the app’s “other inquiry” category, found under the “New Request” icon.

Or fill out a service request form here.

    Thank you so much for posting about the City of Seattle graffiti app- it is SO easy and fast to use and gives you a sense of control over this stupidity. It literally takes less than a minute to report. The City will come and clean up the graffiti; the faster it gets removed the better.

    If you want to do something quick and easy to clean up Magnolia, this is the app for you.

    This is worse that dog poop and women in short tennis skirts. These hoodlums need to be caught and tied to a post or wall and sprayed like they sprayed their stupid gang lingo around my town. Disgusting.

      Since they have to pay for the paint, they are discouraged from tagging if you eliminate it immediately. I eliminated it with whatever color paint I had…then contacted the city. There is no point for them to tag unless it remains, so blotting it out until the city comes discourages them. I used literally paint that was sitting in my garage…just to cover up their names. On my street blotting out tagging immediately meant no new tags…and the city came a few weeks later to do it properly.

    Great to know about this app, thank you. Helps us all keep our neighborhood looked after.

    I think we should break the index finger of the perpetrator. Maybe then they will learn. They should also be responsible for 100 hours community service cleaning the graffiti up (using their one good hand).
