DPZ Vision Plan

The City engaged its citizens in a Comprehensive Vision process for the future of Downtown Camden led by internationally reknowned architecture and town planning firm DPZ PARTNERS. This resulted in efforts to transform Downtown Camden into a destination revitalized with new restaurants, shops, and housing opportunities.

The creation of Camden Town Green was one of the first steps in the physical transformation of  the City's Downtown District. The Broad Street Road re-design concept and the Truck Route Relocation initiative is also included in the plan. Other projects developed as a result of this planning process include the acquisition of the Opera House Clock Tower Building, former Mather Academy Property, and Haiglar and Arthur Lane property for new City parking, as well as the Commerce Alley Transformation and Facade Grant Program, among others.
