Abstract

"City" piece on Portland's problem with graffiti, which Mike Pizzo, president of Portland's Downtown District (PDD), believes is getting out of hand. Pizzo wants a city ordinance that would give PDD the authority to remove graffiti, even from private property, with or without the consent of the property owner. Sally Sutton, executive director of the Maine Civil Liberties Union, said such an ordinance runs the risk of violating individual civil rights and might be unconstitutional. Portland city managerBob Ganley said he believes such an ordinance would face legal challenges and create ill will among property owners.
