Safety In Portland's Central City

Ever wondered about how the City of Portland protects residents in their daily lives? Or the importance of building codes and the logistics of fire and rescue? What about preparing for natural hazards? One of the most important aspects of planning for the future of the city involves planning for the safety of the city and its residents.

In order to address this, Central City 2035 (CC2035) will be holding a public safety symposium on April 22nd. A group of panelists will discuss public safety issues that are specific to the Central City and ways in which CC2035 could plan for them.

Public safety is a crucial element of livability, vitality and longevity in the Central City. While previous plans have focused primarily on crime prevention and property protection, CC2035 acknowledges the complexity and breadth of current public safety issues that includes building construction, natural disasters and traffic safety. This symposium on April 22nd will explore these multi-faceted issues and the effect they have on all those who live in Portland.
