Increase Lighting and Security Cameras to Make the Greenway and Arboretum Safer for Visitors

kit

Yakima Greenway and Arboretum officials want to make the areas safer for you. The Yakima City Council tonight will consider a plan to increase lighting and place security cameras in specific areas along the popular walkways. Councilman Bill Lover says the cameras would be placed at Rotary Lake, Myron Lake and the north 16th Avenue parking area.

Greenway Director Al Brown says it is mainly car prowls they hope to prevent by installing the security cameras. He says the Greenway and Arboretum are very safe areas to enjoy this spring and summer with more than a half million visitors every year. The plan could cost the city about 96 thousand dollars. The money would come from savings in the police department from the retirement of several senior officers. The council meets at 6:00 p.m tonight at City Hall.
