THANK YOU to all those who donated to MAC’s security camera initiative. As of January 2018, MAC has raised nearly $10,000 — well above our matching responsibility — for installation of the infrastructure to place the first security camera. Thank you, Neighbors! Because of your generosity and interest in enhancing Historic Midtown, proceeds raised above the required match will be placed in a special fund to support the installation of additional cameras in the future.
You can continue support the effort by visiting our GoFundMe page here: https://www.gofundme.com/cameras-in-midtown.
Or, send your contributions by mail. Contributions are tax-deductible and can be made to Midtown Action Council, 1230 N. Third St., Harrisburg, PA 17102.
AS BACKGROUND: In August 2017, MAC received a $15,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) to help finance an extension of the wireless video surveillance system, jointly operated by Dauphin County and the city, into Harrisburg’s Historic Midtown neighborhood. The project also includes installation of the first camera on the extended network. [READ THE RELEASE HERE.] Prior to installation, MAC must raise in matching funds.
