City to ‘heighten public confidence’ with CCTV cameras

Work to complete the City of North Bay’s Phase II of the Downtown CCTV Video project will take place over the next few weeks, with a target completion date of Sept. 15.

Camera installations will be made at the Fraser Street and Main Street West intersection, as well as at the property located at 330 Main St. E and owned by the City.

The installation at the Fraser Street and Main Street West intersection will consist of three CCTV cameras. One camera will face east down Main Street West toward Ferguson Street. One will face west along Main Street approaching Cassells Street. The third will face south, recording the distance to Oak Street West.

The second installation at the Main Street East City-owned property will consist of two CCTV cameras. They will be mounted on the Main Street East-side of the canopy, facing west toward Sherbrooke Street.

Another camera will be installed at the Main Street East and Wyld Street intersection facing north toward McIntyre Street, in addition to a camera being installed at the Main Street and Ferguson Street intersection looking south toward Oak Street.

North Bay City Council approved a budget for expanding the reach of the cameras to the downtown core, in March 2013. At the time, the CCTV cameras were billed as being installed to “heighten public confidence,” in the downtown area. The Downtown Improvement Area has been studying the need for security CCTV in the downtown area since that time, in concert with the City.

The City release reminds the public that, “Camera placement is for security only. Cameras will not be monitored and only accessed if requests meet the City of North Bay Video Policy.”
