Community Improvement Services


Urban Corps 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 Gabriel Business Improvement District’s (BIDs) and Maintenance Assessment Districts (MADs), as well as Price Charities.

CIS also partners with the City of San Gabriel, the San Gabriel 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 Los Angeles 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 Gabriel for best management practices in water quality control while conducting graffiti abatement.
