Mayor Dana Redd Wants People Who Work In Camden To Live There

CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – Camden is launching a new initiative to get those who work in the community to live in it.

Mayor Dana Redd says Cooper University Hospital, Rowan University and the Virtua Health System are on board with the incentive plan to get their employees to move into the city, close to their jobs.

She says there are also three local banks willing to provide attractive loan terms to people willing to commit to properties in Camden.

Redd says Camden is on the rebound.

“Safe, affordable and also attractive neighborhoods where our residents can raise their families,” Redd said. “And certainly where we can attract in a middle-class to the city of Camden to not only work here but now live where you work.”

Cooper’s Ferry Partnership helped to develop a new website to promote the employee-housing-incentive program. You’ll find it at

    Safe???? Last time I checked, Camden was either the #1 or #2 most dangerous city in the country!!! Oh, yeah, and they laid off half the police force. The mayor needs to get her head out of her ass. Camden is a dump.
