I also reported this to Caltrans today. I hope the City can take the lead to coordinate a response on this issue. The encampment has been in place for months.
It was completely clean last week. Unfornately, it will not be long before someone ruins it again.
It's been fixed
I've put this same item in several times. The owners keep the area outside the fence relatively clean, but they never clean the graffiti on the bricks.
This has continued to grow in the two months since it was first reported. In addition there are also at least two encampments in Castro between 7th and 9th Streets on the left side in the bushes. One was encroaching into left side the driving Lane causing cars to swerve to avoid the bike and cart protruding into the street.
No one has touched this building.
Sorry the above comment relates to another location at 3rd and Clay.
The owner cleaned it up and it stayed clean for about two days, then was re-covered. If they want to discourage the people doing it, they are going to have to sustain the clean up effort, so that the perpetrators eventually see that their stuff will be immediately painted out and perhaps give up the spot.
Same as I reported on 10/13/13. Still on windows.
This looks a lot better. The owner took care of the building walls, but the windows are still all covered in graffiti, which must be more difficult to remove from glass.
Still not touched. Has the owner been fined for failing to do anything?
Car has been moved
I called this in yesterday and Public Works indicated they couldn't pick it up because it was considered HazMat. It had to be referred to the Fire Dept. However, the person on the phone said that the yellow caution tape indicated that the HazMat unit had already "assessed" it and it should be taken away soon. I saw a special type of Waste Management truck parked right next to it yesterday. I am not sure which agency is actually responsible for hauling it out of there, but it has been there for at least a week.
