We’re excited to announce that we’ve been selected as a Beautify LA Grant recipient for our proposal to beautify Rosewood Gardens with a community clean-up event and custom mural brought to life by our friends Inner-City Arts. Thank you to the City of LA Office of Community Beautification & the 'Keep LA Beautiful' program for this opportunity. Thank you also to Councilmember Paul Koretz and Television City for supporting this project.

together.

(Below: current photo of Rosewood Gardens located at NE corner of Rosewood and Fairfax Avenue)
I would like to publicly thank the Office of Community Beautification and one of its contractors, Northeast Graffiti Busters, for doing such an outstanding job of eradicating graffiti in Eagle Rock and, I assume, any other neighborhood they cover. Over the past week I've reported graffiti in three different locations using the MyLA311 app, and each time it has been removed in less than 18 hours. This morning it was taken care of within three hours. The OCB and Northeast Graffiti Busters are an invaluable asset to my neighborhood and the City of Los Angeles, and I'm so grateful for their service. Sincerely, John Goldfarb
Hello, I live in one of those properties that gets tagged quite often and I put in my requests for graffiti removal through the 311 app. I've noticed a significant delay in response times in the past couple of months. Did something change?
