Three Tree Point Graffiti Removal Almost Complete
Recently, some graffiti tagging took place in the usually-pristine Three Tree Point neighborhood. Two taggings were found in the 16500 block of Maplewild Ave SW â€“ one on the recently-completed retaining wall built after the Nisqually quake damage, and another about a block south.
This morning, Ray Helms of Racy’s Property Services was out scrubbing away with his industrial-strength graffiti remover, as seen in the photos below.
According to Helms, these tags are not gang-related: “I clean up a lot of graffiti for the City of Burien, and these tags don’t look gang-related to me. Gangs usually use numbers to mark their turf. This stuff looks like some kids just got bored.”
If you happen to discover some graffiti, the best thing to do is to immediately contact Burien’s Code Enforcement Officer Jim Bibby at (206) 248-5507, or via email at [email protected].
Keep in mind that the longer the graffiti sits untouched, the tougher it is to remove, so acting fast is the best bet.
