Got Graffiti?

Graffiti Removal

The West End BIZ offers a free year-round graffiti removal service. West End businesses and residents must first sign a waiver which gives the BIZ permission to remove the graffiti tags from their property.
If your property is ever tagged, simply give the BIZ office a call at (204) 954-7900 to report the incident and have our team come out to have it removed.

Another Membership Benefit

Grants provide funds to help enhance the curb appeal of storefronts or improve the safety of premises, staff and customers. These improvements benefit qualifying businesses, but also the larger community, as they collectively improve the area and attract more customers and visitors.
