Looks as if we will have either a little more security or a little less privacy downtown. Take your pick. Looks as if they will be installed along South Illinois with the first few going in between College and Cherry Streets, which make sense as most recent activity that has involved police action has taken place in that stretch. from the press release:
The City of Carbondale is installing security cameras downtown as part of a multi-phase safety project.
The first phase includes cameras that will be placed between College and Cherry Streets with additional phases that will extend along Illinois Avenue.
“The City of Carbondale continues its focus on revitalizing downtown, and enhancing the experience for our residents and visitors is a major part of that effort. Improving safety and ensuring that downtown visitors feel safe is fundamental to our revitalization strategy,” said Carbondale City Manager Gary Williams.
