flowerSanta Barbara created the Adopt-a-Block program to promote teamwork between City staff and residents to keep our neighborhoods clean and clear of graffiti and litter.

Residents who join the program make a one-year commitment to keep a block free of graffiti. Our goal is to have one resident on each block in the Upper East sign up for Adopt-a-Block.

Please contact us at to obtain a free graffiti clean-up kit, which includes a plastic bucket, spray bottle of graffiti remover, application brush, safety goggles, rubber gloves, towel and directions for use. These kits are provided by the City Public Works Department through Looking Good Santa Barbara.
