CLASH announced its petition drive to get its “Lead Safe” Cleveland ordinance proposal on the November 2019 ballot. We need 5,000 signatures from Cleveland registered voters. This is required for a proposed city law to be voted on by citizens.

The proposed ordinance and ballot initiative would require that all city rental properties and day care centers built before 1978 be tested for lead hazards and be certified as “Lead Safe” by 2021. It also includes protections for tenants, creation of a City fund for public and private contributions to assist landlords and other requirements that will educate the public about the dangers of lead poisoning.

CLASH is ramping up its canvassing efforts now and in the coming weeks and needs volunteers to help collect signatures. You can sign up at the below link:
