Drug Free Zone


Drug Free Zone signs presently exist near schools in the City. No new or expanded signing is proposed.


Recent state legislation made it a more serious offense to possess or sell drugs within 150 feet of school property. In response to this legislation, school systems contributed funds to manufacture Drug Free Zone signs. Public Works installed these signs on all public approaches, approximately 150 feet in advance of schools.

No funds are available for maintenance or expansion of the program.


The program is unfunded and will remain as it presently exists.
