Operation Paint Over --- How do we want to deal with graffiti in our community?

This will be our second meeting. If you didn't get a chance to join us the first time, please come ---we are still very much in the planning stages.

When: Monday, August 31st, 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Where: Whispering Palms School at Navy Hill (park where you can and look for sign on the door)


1. Review meeting minutes from prior meeting.
2. Share ideas (3-mins so we can give everyone a chance and allow time for discussion)
3. Report from Victor on Zoning village meetings.
4. Consider next steps:

  • Developing a stakeholder list by village; dividing up the list and begin making contact to bring those people into the discussion (Crime Stoppers, Neighborhood Watch)

  • Plan out how to achieve a photo journal of the existing graffiti issues village by village

  • Assign one person to attend each of the remaining village-by-village Zoning meetings so that we can inquire about "graffiti" in that village

5. Confirm next meeting date/time/location - Monday, Sept 14th, 5:30p, Whispering Palms School at Navy Hill

The principle concept is to follow the Beautify CNMI established style of getting things done. We build a coalition, share resources where we can and support individual(s) and/or group(s) that have an action plan.

Note: Current organizational partners already committed include Rotary Club of Saipan and Island SK8 Society.
