Awareness is the First Step Of Preparedness – A Cascadia Subduction Zone event

This bill should never have been passed as a one size fits all. Certain coastal communities have population limitations due to the Environmental Surroundings & Infrastructure. Safely being able to evacuate everyone in a safe timely manner seems to have been overlooked in this Bill for certain areas?

One Example: Newport has only ONE (1) escape route to go East (Hwy 20). More than 10,000 residents would have to use Hwy 20 to evacuate from the threat of a Tsunami or Wildfire. We are presently beyond capacity to safely evacuate the current population and there are steps being taken to change Newport’s code to comply with HB2001, which would allow the packing of even more people into our already overcrowded residential areas. (Much Worse in Summer Tourist Season)

Providing more housing at the cost of endangering lives is not a Housing Shortage Solution. I’m asking for your help to amend HB2001 to have exempt conditions that take into account evacuation restrictions.

We cannot afford to have bills that make mistakes that lead to the loss of life of other people.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and please share our concerns with relevant parties as we have limited email contacts.
