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 a desire for downtown to be a destination rather than a byway, 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 downtown. The Broad Street Road design and the Truck Route Relocation arealso included in this 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.
