Recently, I've noticed a lot of graffiti "tagging" around town. Here's good evidence that graffiti and vacant, run-down locations should be cleaned up ASAP.

Sounds to me like an excuse to bypass the Palo Alto process.

Instead of complaining, why don't you become a volunteer to clean up the graffiti mess? The City needs more volunteers to clean up graffiti ASAP.
