The City of Toronto won a Silver Award for leadership in Municipal Government for their successful and integrated approach to graffiti and street art in 2015. Presented by the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) and Deloitte to recognize outstanding leadership, innovation, collaboration and strategic thinking while improving public policy and management.
"The City's Graffiti Management Plan is an integrated approach to graffiti and street art that combines enforcement, removal and beautification through the StARToronto initiatives and improved co-ordination to support victims of graffiti vandalism and showcase street art and artists. The program is led by Transportation Services and Municipal Licensing and Standards in conjunction with the Toronto Police Service and community groups such as Business Improvement Areas, arts organizations and artists."
"Congratulations are in order for city staff, the police and the many community groups and artists involved in this great program," said Councillor Jaye Robinson (Ward 25 Don Valley West), Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee.
