Columbia Pool is the only pool the city proposes to close, but cuts to the Parks & Recreation budget also threaten closure of Sellwood Community Center and reduction in important programs—as well as cause massive layoffs of Parks employees. For too long, Portland’s neighborhoods have been pitted against each other, fighting for resources. Sign the petition to tell Mayor Wheeler that you demand full funding of the Portland Parks & Recreation budget.
