The City of Columbia Public Works Department is currently seeking community input on plans to upgrade cameras in City-owned parking garages. More information about the City’s six parking garages is available at City Parking Garages.
Project design includes:
- Conversion of analog camera system to an IP system, which will allow for a clearer video images, centralized staff access to video footage and increased security for all City-owned parking garages.
- Additional cameras at the entrances and exits of all City-owned parking garages to support the transition to an automated payment system.
- Additional cameras at the top level of the Fifth and Walnut Parking Garage for increased surveillance opportunities.
The cost estimate for this project is $250,000. Project funding is from the FY 2018 Parking Enterprise fund that was allocated for an FY 2019 Parking Capital Improvement Project.
Planned Installation Date:
Project installation is expected to begin in the late spring/early summer of 2019.
The City of Columbia’s project process includes the following steps:
- An interested parties meeting is planned for Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
- A public hearing will be held before a City Council meeting – tentatively scheduled for April 2019.
