It was a big day in Cambridge June 10, as Maryland Governor Larry Hogan was here to celebrate three different revitalization initiatives!

  • The Packing House: Gov. Hogan cut the ribbon for the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s new Eastern Shore satellite office and Community Engagement Center inside the former Phillips Packing Company building. The office and center will serve as anchor tenants, while other tenants will build on our tradition of agriculture and aquaculture.
  • Cambridge Harbor: Demolition began on Governor’s Hall at Sailwinds – a former tuna plant that served as an event venue. The former Dorchester Hospital will also be demolished to make space for a mix of new commercial and housing as well as recreational and green space as part of the 35-acre waterfront redevelopment area.
  • Mace’s Lane Community Center: Ground was broken on the former Mace’s Lane High School building, which will be transformed into a space offering outreach programs and recreational activities, event space, and more.
