2019 ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR
COOPER’S FERRY PARTNERSHIP
To serve as the catalyst for the preservation and growth of a vibrant Camden.
Cooper’s Ferry Partnership (CFP) was founded in 1984 as a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to planning and implementing high-quality urban redevelopment projects to revitalize the City of Camden. Our initial focus was concentrated on the redevelopment of Camden’s downtown waterfront area. Serving as the planner, promoter, and master developer, more than $600 million of private and public investment was realized at the Camden Waterfront, successfully putting into place the building blocks for a vibrant, mixed-use waterfront community, which is anchored by family entertainment venues, office buildings & residential lofts.
A residents-first approach is at the core of what we do and focuses on housing, public safety, infrastructure, education, neighborhood initiatives, park and green space development, and to facilitate the creation of employment opportunities. Strategic investments in these areas act as a catalyst for future growth and bring a renewed sense of pride in the city as a vibrant place to live, work and play.
The movement we’re a part of in Camden is greater than the sum of its parts. It is a true community spirit that allows CFP to continue to assist with propelling Camden forward to its renaissance. We invite you to join us to continue working together for a new Camden—a Camden Rising!
