At last month’s Clemson Police Advisory Board meeting, chairwoman Margaret Thompson said she was asked by a local resident why downtown neighborhood streets are no longer blocked off during Clemson home football games.
The Clemson Police Department has received 11 reports of people being drugged in the downtown area since 2018, including two active investigations this fall semester, but Capt. Matt Culbreath said the department hasn’t been able to verify the claims “for a variety of reasons.”
More than 70 people turned out for a noon meeting Tuesday at Clemson’s Nettles Park to begin gathering public input for the future of the Uptown area including Tiger Boulevard and the upper portion of College Avenue, including Keowee Trail.
Several members of Clemson City Council expressed criticism Monday night of the School District of Pickens County for failing to mandate masks for children in schools despite receiving clearance from the state Department of Education.
Students at schools and similar settings in Clemson will continue to be required to wear masks for at least the next 60 days while those inside essential businesses open to the public are no longer required to do so.
