The City has issued permits for citywide residential curb address painting to a couple of local nonprofits. These permits stipulate that Canning Hunger and Care for the Children are authorized to repaint curb address numbers on the condition that they paint all curb addresses within city limits and that they perform the work at no cost to the homeowner; donations, while not obligatory, will be accepted from those who wish to support the nonprofits. The repainting effort is currently underway and expected to continue into July with work hours designated to take place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Canning Hunger crews are working on address numbers south of Grand Avenue, while those representing Care for Children are covering the area north of Grand Avenue. Workers from both nonprofits carry a copy of the City work permit as well as company identification. If approached by an individual asking for payment for curb painting services, residents are encouraged to ask to see both of these documents.
As a reminder, there is no obligation to pay for unsolicited services – if the individual performing curb address painting services is demanding payment instead of just asking for a donation, or if they cannot produce a copy of the permit and company identification, the Diamond Bar-Walnut Sheriff’s Station should be contacted through its non-emergency line at 909.595.2264. For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 909.839.7040.
