City of Bloomington, Indiana – John Hamilton, Mayor

closed: Can't Fix #137017


Other: When the oil(?) storage tanks where removed from the lot across from the back of Seminary Square shopping center (Kroger's, Peach Garden), what was revealed was another brown brick building to the south that has a "smokestack". The north side of this building is COVERED in hideous graffiti and is is -right on- the B-Line walkway as it meanders south. This building looks like it is a real business but it is hard to tell. Was it the building/business associated with the oil tanks? The defacement was easy for vandals to do when the oil tanks were in place but they would be spotted now so maybe something -can be done about it-? Especially since it is right on a signature urban success, the B-Line.

John Hewett
Are you a property owner/manager
Graffiti is on
Is this area constantly plagued by graffiti?
If so, is it always the same kind of graffiti (political, idealogical, offensive, tags, etc?)
The huge amount of defacement was revealed when the white rusted oil tanks were removed.
Would you like to be contacted

I have contacted both the complainant and the owner. there is no Code giving me enforcement ability on this.

I have spoken to the owner. this is in the early stages of development. He will address the graffiti when it is feasible.
