2013 Graffiti Hurts FlashCAM Grant Winner: Eight Mile Boulevard Association(Detroit, MI)

Congratulations to Eight Mile Boulevard Association of Detroit, MI! They were the winners of the 2013 FlashCAM Grant from Graffiti Hurts.

The Eight Mile Boulevard Association (8MBA) is a nonprofit organization in Michigan, established in 1993, which focuses on revitalizing the “appearance and business climate along the Eight Mile Boulevard through education, assistance, code compliance and cooperation.” They applied for the Graffiti Hurts FlashCAM Grant this year in order to enhance their efforts to address the issues of graffiti along the Eight Mile corridor. Certain areas along the corridor have recently become a growing issue and with this grant application, their goal was to become more aggressive in their approach to stop graffiti in their community.

With their new FlashCAM-880SX system, Eight Mile Boulevard Association will be partnering with their community stakeholders and law enforcement professionals to develop a comprehensive and strategic FlashCAM program to deter taggers from returning to deface properties. This program will help engage each partner to help with the identification, remediation and prevention of graffiti along Eight Mile.

We are looking forward to hearing the success stories from Eight Mile Boulevard Association with their FlashCAM program in these coming years. As with previous FlashCAM grant recipients, this strategic approach and dedicated team to these efforts that Eight Mile Boulevard Association has developed for this FlashCAM program will help them see great results with their FlashCAM.
