Douglas Avenue Cameras Solve Robbery

he Douglas Avenue BID Board has made it a priority to help ensure safety within the district. After exploring potential solutions, the BID commissioned a study to install a wireless security camera system in the south end of the corridor. Data from the Racine Police Department was used to determine the best locations for camera placement and ultimately cameras were installed at Hamilton Street, Superior Street, St. Patrick Street, High Street, and Charles Street.

On March 14th, 2019, the police responded to a report of a bank robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank, located at 1700 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The suspect, who was armed, fled prior to police arrival. After an arrest was made, the Racine Police Department notified the Douglas Avenue BID that the security camera system played a vital role in the identification of the suspect, capturing video both before and after the robbery.

The Police Department has requested that additional cameras be installed at Goold and South Streets. Planning is underway to install those two cameras in 2019.

Mi Jacalito

On April 23, 2017, a fire ravaged Mi Jacalito, a popular Mexican restaurant at 1318 Douglas Avenue. The owners have been busy expanding and updating the restaurant ever since. The small restaurant now occupies the entire building with a bar and seating for over 90 customers. Everything has been remodeled and custom-made, and hand-painted, furniture was brought in from Jalisco, Mexico.

What hasn’t changed is the fresh and delicious food. The restaurant is famous for its crunchy shell tacos and homemade chicken noodle soup served with every meal. On the weekends, foodies flock to Mi Jacalito for menudo, a spicy Mexican soup. Other house specialties include sizzling fajitas, authentic chicken mole, posole and shrimp cocktail.

As the road work on Douglas Avenue continues, Mi Jacalito customers may park in the lot just south of the restaurant or in the American Legion parking lot at 1234 Douglas Avenue. The new hours for the restaurant will be Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM and Friday and Saturday from 8:00 AM until 11:00 PM. On Sundays, the restaurant will be open from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM.
