Pilot Program Aims to help keep the BeltLine Beautiful

A new pilot is underway on the Atlanta BeltLine to help keep one Atlanta’s most beloved public spaces beautiful. In an effort to support the City of Atlanta Parks crew dedicated  to maintaining BeltLine trails and parks, Atlanta BeltLine has hired Sun Brite Services, Inc. to remove graffiti on all completed, paved BeltLine trails. From February 28-March 1, the team completed a thorough cleaning of light poles, guard rails, retention walls, etc. on the Eastside and Westside Trails.

Moving forward, Sun Brite Services, Inc. will conduct a weekly inspection and removal of graffiti on the paved trails to help keep graffiti levels down. The crew will be on the paved trails once a week to assess and removal graffiti starting at 8am. They will also address profane and emergency graffiti removal within 48 hours of the report. Their work excludes the city’s free paint spaces on the BeltLine, notably under Freedom Parkway and Krog Street Tunnel, which have long been celebrated as public spaces for creative expression for muralists and style writers alike.


Sun Brite Services, Inc. completed a thorough cleaning of paved BeltLine Trail from the Eastside Trail to the Westside Trail as part of a new graffiti removal pilot.

As the BeltLine’s first graffiti removal pilot program, the goal is to help support the Parks department’s small but mighty BeltLine team with supplemental graffiti removal services. The pilot will run until summer 2025 and is funded thanks to legislation passed by the City of Atlanta in 2023 to increase funding for park improvements.

“We are very excited to launch this new pilot to help our friends at City of Atlanta Parks keep the BeltLine clean and enjoyable for all users,” said Clyde Higgs, CEO and President of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “As we continue to build out the 22-mile loop, the task of maintaining this public amenity is ongoing, and my team is actively exploring innovative ways to ensure that the BeltLine is maintained in a way that our grandchildren will this city treasure.”
