Portland School Safety First - Prioritize Kids!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We believe that Portland City Council should prioritize seismically retrofitting Portland Public Schools as it's top priority in it's effort for our city to be resilient. 

This Petition demands that Portland City Council prioritizes timelines and funds for our Kids and Schools.

Only 4% of Portland Public Schools are retrofitted. This leaves tens of thousands of children, educators and volunteers at risk. 

The City of Portland’s proposed mandate puts Portland’s Schools on the longest (20 year) timeline, does not require life-safety standards and shifts funding away from schools to 1,600 private sector buildings, creating competition for funding and labor, which will drive construction costs higher for schools.

Tell City Council to prioritize our Schools, Kids and Funding.
