Urban Corps of San Diego County

Community Improvement Services

Keeping communities clean, safe and attractive.

Our Community Improvement Services (CIS) Department works to keep communities clean and safe, while making shopping districts attractive by responding directly to local needs.

We are contracted by various San Diego Business Improvement District’s (BIDs) and Maintenance Assessment Districts (MADs), as well as Price Charities, the Port of San Diego, Civic San Diego and the City of Carlsbad.

CIS also partners with the City of San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District and the City of Carlsbad to remove graffiti. Using state-of-the-art equipment and graffiti removal techniques, Corpsmembers annually remove approximately 2 million square feet of graffiti to improve San Diego County.

We are familiar with and practice EPA standards for preventing illegal water run-off and harmful chemicals and have been recognized by the City of San Diego for best management practices in water quality control while conducting graffiti abatement.

Please Note

All graffiti requests must be processed through the City of San Diego. Urban Corps will be assigned to remove only on approved private properties.
