Redd places 59 Camden lots on city’s abandoned properties list

    Of the 91 Cramer Hill properties Camden Mayor Dana Redd’s administration reviewed and processed, 59 made it to the city’s Abandoned Property List. As part of a new initiative, those properties could soon be available for redevelopment.


    Joined yesterday by Sen. Donald Norcross, Assemblyman Angel Fuentes, Father William Jud Weiksnar from Camden Churches Organized for People, Manuel Delgado from the Cramer Hill Community Development Corporation, representatives from Camden United and Camden Community Development Association, members of the mayor’s Business Growth and Development Team and Camden residents, Redd talked about the process of getting the 59 Cramer Hill properties on the list.

    As part of Redd’s Abandoned Properties Toolkit, owners of the 59 lots will be notified and have a chance to appeal. Once that process is complete, interested parties can apply through the BGDT to rehab the property, provided those plans comply with the city’s master plan, redevelopment plan, neighborhood plan, zoning plan and capital improvement budget plan.
