I recently did a little time travel via Google Street View.
A decade ago, the neighbourhood was strikingly different – but not because we now have any new high-rises, big box stores or parking lots. The same family homes and low-rise condos are still bounded by a park, a mall and city streets and the area still centres around an elementary school.
But today, a plague of graffiti defaces power boxes, mailboxes, lamp posts, fences and more. In recent weeks, the tags have multiplied faster than ever.
Fellow Surreyites – is your neighbourhood infected with this plague? Clean up your own fences. Contact the city about the rest. The longer you leave it the faster it spreads.
