Be sure to sign on the dotted line before you tastefully graffiti on the walls along Ocean Beach.

Class Act Marketing is currently collecting signatures in an effort to further beautify San Francisco -- with an edge.

Their project proposes to turn the graffiti-covered walls on Ocean Beach into a public art space where residents and visitors alike can legally leave their mark on the city.

At present the plan has 77 of the 10,000 signatures needed in order to move forward with the proposal.

The agency hopes to turn Ocean Beach into a worldwide and family-friendly graffiti hotspot à la Venice Beach in Southern California.

Think about it; this might bring some much needed color to the bleak seawalls of Ocean Beach. If you want shake up a spray paint can and get to work then it's best sign the plan.

Balmy is the standard, and Clarion is a level down.

Why? I think the heart and peace sign should be in Oregon or Washington or some where else.

Beautification through art is one aspect that sets San Francisco apart as one of our nation's largest and most attractive cities... Particularly for tourists, current/ future residents, and artists, i.e. painters & photographers. Placing restrictions on the proliferation of wall art as the city continues to grow and build makes very little to no sense. The human eye is drawn toward color & beauty, as well as to scenes of intrigue. If The City's art begins to fade to grey, it will have lost a large piece of it's beauty, charm, and character. My point? Keep the color. I challenge you to take a chance. See how this project to legalize graffiti might change Ocean Beach for the better! Skilled graffiti artists definitely exist.

If you don't want art, please relocate to suburban America. The strip malls do not tolerate such eyesores.

No way. Keep it clean we don't want looking like mission or downtown!

What? Isn't it messy enough? It could make the area more desirable. LOL! As if that will ever happen.

Absolutely, yes. Clarion Alley, going between Mission and Valencia right next to Community Thrift has some of the most beautiful street art in the city. Ocean Beach would be another perfect place for that.
