St. Cloud’s mayor is hoping to change residents’ perception of downtown safety. Mayor Dave Kleis gave his 12th annual State of the City address last night at the St. Cloud Area YMCA Community and Aquatics Center. Kleis reflected on the results of a community survey that showed just over half of residents feel unsafe walking alone downtown. Kleis pointed to low actual crime statistics in downtown as a way to show the area is safe. The city also plans to install more cameras downtown.
